Hi Folks,

Thought I'd drop in and say Hi and pass along some great and encouraging news (great for me and encouraging for those currently in treatment). This past weekend I had a clean PET/CT scan and check up. That puts me at 2 yrs and 7 months post treatment. I had been diagnosed with BOT Stage IV, underwent rads/chemo for TX.

Very nice to see some familiar faces still posting. For all those 'newbies', stay the course, it's well worth it. Life is good! Cheers.

Jimbo

I don't believe we've met but I am thrilled to meet you and hear this amazing news! It is so nice and encouraging when you "graduates" come back and tell us how good you are doing.
I have my 9 month scans next week and your news will help settle my nerves a bit, thank you!
Enjoy and celebrate!!
Billie

Congrats Jimbo! As a caregiver to a Newbie this is encouraging news for us! Thank for coming on and sharing that with us! My loved one had a similar dx as yours. He was SCC BOT, HPV16+, Stage IV, with 2 lymph nodes involved on same side. No surgery, just 7 wks Chemo (Carboplatin & Paclitaxel) and Rads. We just had our 3 month PET and were introduced to NED! He's a great friend to have...and I pray we all get a lifetime relationship with him!

God Bless,

Jimbo,

 

I’ve read some of your old posts and see you’ve jumped all the same hurdles.  Tell me are you still located in Asia, it probably sounds more dramatic to me than it is.  I know there are a few here at H&N central that clock-in from out of the country (I just find it interesting). 

 

Congratulation on your clean scan and I will take you previous advice and get some exercise.

 

1-day from 1-year,

 

Matt

Thanks for all the nice comments, folks.

John. you must be one of the newbies here? Oh wait, now I remember you....lol..nice to see you're still posting.

Mike, hope things have been getting better and better for you.

Matt, I am still in Asia - I split my time between Thailand and Cambodia. It is always an adventure. I highly recommend the exercise, I believe it's worked wonders for me!

Cheers,

Jimbo
