I don’t have the Carotid cancer but I do have the Carotid sinus damage left over from C treatment, just trying to live with the problems.

Hello everyone
i haven't been on site for a long time because everything was going Sooo well.... Wake up time... Who knew that in 8 years after being radiated that I would have 80% Cartoid artery stenosis! Everyone! But they forgot to tell me. Didn't realize that 70% of head and neck patients experience this around year 8! Da! I need to find the #1 Neurovascular surgeon to do the surgery . I will fly anywhere to find "the best"! Any suggestions? Please help!

What symptoms did you have before being diagnosed with cartoid artery stenosis?

Not Carotid cancer, but I too have to be monitored because of where they focused so much with radiation.  Does it really take 8 years to show up?
