May 31 2013 i found out i had Squamis cell carsanoma (spelling) and started 9 months of almost hell.
I had my last radiation on Oct 29th, first PET Scan end of Jan and It was clear also. I had 3 rounds of Chemo, a blood clot in lower lung, 4 trips a week each spent in hospital for one thing or another. 37 daily mon to friday radiation treatments. A Trach, feeding tube and port put in back in June 2013 and Trach Removed Jan and almost healed up completly and Get Feeding Tube out This coming Friday. I Had everything done at Stephenson Cancer Center at OU Medical Center and am Very pleased with the outcome. It was a Very Hard last 9 months but Life 2.0 is just starting.
I am eating soft foods reallly well and getting better as i go at other normal foods. I lost from 215 in May to 130 at one point, only up to 140 now but feeling super good actually. Only water and milk to drink since July of last year, better foods and healther just doesnt make me gain that fast. Dry mouth is a struggle but not too bad if i have a bottle of water close by. I do get tired fairly quick but that will just take time to get back to strength.
Life 2.0 now begins!
