I went to UIC today, I go for a CT scan on Tuesday and then go back on March 16 to see my Dr/Surgeon and a rad onco. My doc is hoping to be able to try just radiation due to the fact that surgery on my entire chin and lower lip could be disfiguring. Of course this depends on what the CT scan shows...I am not getting my hopes up about no surgery but at least its a possibility:) She is highly regarded for her work/surgery with cancer of the head and neck and yet mine has thrown her for a loop. She took pictures of my chin and lower lip and said she would research it until she can tell me I am not alone.
They seem to think that my IDC which I just finished chemo for three months ago might have played a role in it some how. I know so many of you have faced and are going through radiation and from what I have read on here, oh boy, I hope I can get through it. You are all very inspiring:)
