Very pleased to announce that my recent visit with the oncologist resulted in a further NED (no evidence of disease). There is however a lump on the side of my neck which she says is probably scar tissue from the radiation, but she will keep an eye on it. Next ENT is in December,with a further oncologist clinic in February 2019. So all good. Lack of saliva issue is persisting and sometimes food is tasteless, but in all spirits are up re cancer. However still getting over my last bout of sepsis which has resulted in some memory loss. To be honest I fear a reoccurence of sepsis more than I do getting cancer again.

    Glad everything is good except for the standard side effects like dry mouth, etc. Certainly thankful your scan was NED-Russ
