I had my 8 week post treatment CT scan last monday. The results were not as good as we had hoped. Although the scan showed NED in my head and neck, it also showed 4 nodules in the upper lobe of my right lung. All four are less then a centimeter in size. I have not spoken to my doctor about this yet as the news was delivered by my rad onc's nurse. I am still waiting for an appointment with the med onc to discuss this. I am scheduled for a PET on July 1. That seems like a long way off! Other than this, things are going fairly well. My saliva has started to return (about 25%) taste as started to return (again about 25 - 30%) however goes away quickly after I try to eat something. My greatest obstical seems to be my lack of energy. I wear out very quickly and my entire body will ache until I take my pain med (hydro codone). I trully pray you all are doing well in the stage of treatment and recovery you are in!
