I still check in and read posts and send positive thoughts to you all. My husband is so grateful when I can say....oh, that is totally normal....on the boards...... it makes him feel like he is not alone.
He finished treatments for scc stage 4 tonsils on 1/31/13. His April PET and CT were clear with "extra junk from the landscape change from rads".... But no cancer. His scopes since then...all clear. He went through everything no PEG....not by choice...They had to abort surgery to place it bc it wasn't going to be a safe placement. So....he endured swallowing all his nutrition.
His next contrast CT is in a week 8/20. And....yep, you guessed it.....he is totally worried that cancer is back. Last week he ate fish with panko breading which he aspirated. He went into a coughing fit. Since then, he feels like he has this tickle in his lungs....he can't cough it away. It's only a once in a while cough.....but he is worried. I keep telling him to not worry.....it is not cancer. It's just that back of the mind small voice that pipes up when things don't feel right......darn voice!
