Hi Penny, I know today was your husbands last radiation treatment and I just wanted to congratulate him. Please let him know that I am doing the "happy dance" for him!! It is such an awesome feeling to know you won't have to go back and can now start recovering from the radiation. I'm starting to feel a little better each day, I'm not as tired and the nausea is almost non existent now. My biggest problem is the dry mouth and food still doesn't taste good. I have found a few soft foods that don't taste real bad that I make myself eat each day along with my nutritional supplements.
I go for a CT scan of my lung today to see if the chemo did anything to that tumor. I go for my blood work on Thursday but I will be seeing the PA instead of my oncologist but I'm hoping she can tell me the results of the scan. It will probably be a couple of weeks before they do the scan of my larynx to see if there is any good news there. I will keep you posted.
Again, congratulate your husband for me and tell him it will only start getting better now.
Take care and stay strong. WE DID IT!!!
