I was diagnosed with T2 tongue cancer right before Christmas. For the first month all the doctors I saw were saying radiation and possible chemo, which the next Dr I saw said I didn't need. Then after a series of events, mainly me getting the flu and having to postpone all the appts I had made. I had to see yet another new Dr and he said I did not need RT, but surgery. So I am scheduled for surgery mid March. Talk about a total change of direction. I am fortunate that I have a medical back ground and lots of family support. But even that did not prepare me for what is just the begininng of this journey. After all the posts I read, I look forward to getting the support and advice I will need as I go down this path.
