Hello all. I have been coming to this board since February of this year after my husband was diagnosed with unk primary involving a lymph node in his neck. Since that time, he has had surgery to remove the node while taking out 23 extra for a sample. Those were all negative. I remember thinking at the time how wonderful that was, but was discouraged to find that we WANT to find the primary site somewhere. So, after we went to the Cancer Center and met with the oncology team, they made the decision to take the tonsils out this past weekend hoping we will find something there prior to starting radiation therapy. Pathology should be back this week. In the meantime, it looks like the plan is radiation 5 days a week for 6 wks. If we can find the site, at least they have a direction to go in!
While this is a family I did not want to be in, this site has given us both a lot of hope and answers too. We have somewhat of an idea of what is up ahead, but appreciate that you are all here for us as we progress through this craziness. So let me thank you all ahead of time! We hope that we can be there for you also, even though we are new.
