I had my 6 month checkup yesterday. Doctor looked at everything with the camera. She said that things are looking good. Still a little redness and mucus but she said that I a recovering nicely and no visible signs of recurrence.
I wanted to share this news in hopes of offering a little encouragement to those who are currently in treatment. You can make it to the end and it is possible to have good results :)
My first PET scan after treatments was done in March and they saw no evidence of cancer on that scan. They will be doing a CT scan for my next check up which will be in September.
It was a little strange going back to the place where I had all of the radiation treatments. It brought back memories of a dark time and I did cry a little.
I am still dealing with taste bud issues and lack of energy but both seem to continue to improve at a slow pace.
I am worried about my taste buds. At six months out, I wonder if this is the best that it will ever be or is it still possible that they could continue to get better?? My doctor said that they may not get much better at this point. I hope to prove her wrong! It seems that some of you have said that you have seen improvement even later than 6 months?? Please share...
Thank you for listening. I read all of the posts every day and appreciate every one of you!!
