Husband was diagnosed 2/2013 with right tonsil cancer, T1N2a, HPV positive. Underwent concurrent chemo and rads. 2 rounds of Cisplatin and 35 rads.  6 weeks post tx had a CT scan of neck and chest. Lymph node was decreased in size, but still present.  Had PET last Thursday (12 weeks post tx) and gets results tomorrow.  I know others have been there.  I am so anxious and feeling depressed even though I know we could get good news and praying for that.  Hoping all the H&N patients will say a prayer for Greg and myself and send some good thoughts and vibes our way!

P.S. I don't often post, but I do follow what others post. God bless all of you survivors, those in treatment and family members. Anyone who has been affected "gets it".

are in surplus here....there's plenty to send to you.....and I'll tuck him into the magic phrannie pocket, a nice safe cozy place....we even have a teesy TV :) .

Scanxiety runs rampent for everyone....I put myself through hell everytime....wish there was a way to get out of it, but so far I haven't found it.

I'm sorry he has to wait so long to get the results....that would KILL me.  Just hang in there, and soon you'll be hearing good new....I know it!
