About three Months ago I had to get a tooth pulled and you know with me it is a major event. The doctor would only pull the tooth while I was under and in a Surgery center just in case the tooth or Jaw broke and he would have to go in and drill the tooth out of my mouth. The other problem if you remember is I can’t open my Jaw but 19mm a little over a ½ inch. My ENT at the same time wanted to clean up my sinus because I bleed sometimes and always seem to have a sinus infection. And at the same time give me a good scoping to make sure everything in there is OK.
About two weeks after during a follow-up appointment I notice that the doctor was a little uneasy about something. So just before she finished checking me she sat down and told me that during the surgery she took some biopsies and they came back positive for NPC. While she was looking straight at me I just smiled and told her, wow God is so good. She at first did not understand but then I asked her. Doc you just did a scope and did you see anything that looked like a tumors or cancer, she said no I did not. Then I told her you remember in my files that every ENT before you all said the same thing but never seen any active C.
I just did my 3 Month follow-up appointment with my ENT last week and I could see that she had that puzzled look on her face again. She did the normal scoping like always and said; I just don’t understand it, I looked and said understand what. This pathology report is saying that you have cancer but I don’t see any evidence of disease. Doc are you telling me that I am NED, She said I don’t know what else to tell you because I don’t see where you have Cancer.
I still have and live with a lot of problems from all the treatment but God knows how much we can stand and give the grace needed to make another day.
God Bless you all who are still running the race, I am pulling for you at the finish line.
