Hello old friends,
I know it's been a while, but now I have another question. Historically, my husband had scc of tonsils, Stage 4, went through radical neck dissection in April of 2011, 35 radiation sessions in June of 2011. He hasn't had a PET scan for 1 1/2 years (being followed by ENT surgeon.) She says she doesn't think PET scans are necessary anymore, that is the "standard of care."
Jeez, I hate to be one who fights with the doctor, but I think I've read differently here, and I want to be armed with as much info as I can get before next appt. in January 2014. So I'm just wondering, what have been your experiences, what have you heard from various doctors, etc.?
Thanks in advance for any answers, and I've gotta say, I was sad to read so many names I don't recognize today, because that means you're newer to this forum, but on the other hand, I was glad to read that other "old-timers" are still plugging away and staying active.
