Friends,

2 months shy of the 2-year mark and I heard the words “No Signs of Cancer” this afternoon.  Other than edema, my ENT neither saw, felt nor scoped anything suspicious. Next exam in 6 months.

Keep on keeping on!

Bev,

Great News in our circle (H&N world).  I am going to enjoy a hamburger from Ruby Tuesday (and 2 glasses ice tea and 2 glasses of water).

Grandmax4,

Under my chin around the front of my neck.  When it is deflated the turkey neck comes out.  Suggestions comes from  the Superthread massage technique.   Recently, my rad onc asked if I wanted a perscription for more massages and I said “no” (it is easy to do yourself).

Glad to hear the results. Once you hit two years, you can really start putting this whole thing in the rear view mirror. Congrats! Don

Don,

I know, 2 months premature.  I hope I did not “jump the gun”, but you should have seen the smile on my ENT’s face or heard to inflection in his voice.  I was seduced, hopefully, happily.

The appointment was scheduled for today, the results stand for now.

That is wonderful. In 3 hours and 37 minutes I am hoping to hear the same news. I will grab Phrannie and do the happy dance. I will stand my ground on the floor she can do the counter or table thing. Congradulations!!!!!!!!

Jeff,

I had no scan to wait on (CT 3 months previous), so mine was instant gratification.  Phrannie should put out a post cancer exercise video “Happy Dance”.
