Saw my onco today got the NED results..whew!!!....BUT, seems that my left carotid artery shows 50% blockage, this was the side of the neck with the least rads ..as the WHAT THE XXXX rolled off my lips I said how..she said a gift from radiation, I said tell me how 4 clean PET scans , now a 2nd CT all in the last 18 months didn't show any of this..she had no explanations...she will make a referal to a cardiologist for me, told me to start taking a baby asprin again.. I asked isn't 50% bad, she said not really it's when you get to 80,90 or completely blocked then it's bad...said not to worry just have it checked ..and seee ya in 6 months. I guess cause I'm just an engineer I will never ever understand the medical field and all it's just because's.
Anyway happy for the NED and will take the atery stuff as the next step in my abi-normal life.
Take care all,
..ps...has anyone else had any carotid issues after treatment?
