Hubby got his scan today. ENT said significant thickening and hardness in his neck on both sides, moreso on the left. Palpation and visual good but he said he didn't want to tell us not to worry about the rapid change in his neck without a CT scan. He said possible it is result of radiation but did not want to take any chances.
So, a long weekend of scanxiety. He warned it could be middle of next week. So the waiting game begins. I think what has Dale concerned too is that his new symptoms are exactly what they were a year ago that made him go to the doctor and ultimately led to the tonsil cancer diagnosis -- fatigue, loss of appetite, stiff and sore neck. Yes, those are also side effects of his treatment, but he had gotten remarkably better in the last several weeks in all those categories.
Thanks all for your thoughts, prayers and words of encouragement. Wherever you are on your journey, hang in there and prayers for you, too.
