Hi Friends!

I wanted to offer hope to others with my good news.  My 1st scan results brought me good news...NED!! 

I finished chemo and radiation on Dec 19th 2012 for tonsil cancer on the left side with 1 lymph node involvement on the same side.

I know that I am not really out of the woods but this is great news and I am going to enjoy life until my next scan or scope.

My voice is still horse, my taste buds and appetite are not 100%, and I still have lots of swelling of the throat area so my recovery continues.  I am back to work full time (credit union). I had the PEG tube removed about a month after treatments ended as I really did not use it much.

I hope this offers a little light of hope for any of you that are currently in treatments.  There is a light at the end of the tunnel...

Regards, Joan Thompson

What a great day this has been....so many NED's on the board. 

You're getting better and better every week....but since it come in degrees, it's hard to map it out.  You're barely out of treatment in the healing department, and it sounds to me like you're right on schedule. 

That first scan is one scary dude....hopefully, they get less and less scanxiety producing as time goes by.

Congrats to you! Thank you for sharing your news with us. I'm a caregiver to loved one that just got a NED about 2 weeks ago. We finished tx around the same time you did...early December. Things are starting to feel a little more normal...: )
