Been a long time, it seems...


Hi All! Been a few years. I had the cancer on my left tonsil in 2011. Did the feeding tube, 35 rad... Then in May 2013, during the night had a horrendous coughing spell. I thought it was due to allergies/whatnot. But 2 lumps formed on my neck..had bi-opsy. Cancer. My PET from 2011 was completely clear, I mentioned this on this forum 'back in the day'.  In May 2013 I was diagnosed with the ole SOB..June 11 had a Radical Neck Dissection. Interoperative radiation. So here I am back again with a positive self, albeit a tad painful at times.

Enough about are ya'll?!!!!! I have not forgotten you all that helped me very much through this. Have not nor will not stop praying for all of you.

    long time

    Hi Robin,

    Welcome back, I am sorry for your second tangle with the SOB.

    I went back and read your first post.  I saw many of your H&N friends are still dropping by on occasion. Based on your first post, how did your taste buds make out and I can see that you are still having your mettle tested.

    Good luck on all future scans.
