In year 2011, we had 89 folks who registered or checked back in. You only need to enroll and check in once a year. If you have not enrolled and checked back in this year (2012), please do so. Thank you. How to Enroll We started this list a few years ago. It is a voluntary enrollment for Head and Neck Cancer folks and you enroll in this thread. I noticed that H+N had a very high survival rate and the enrollment/reporting would provide incentive and good news on our survival to those checking in for the first time. I am sure that many of the 50 plus who failed to report back in are still around. There may be others who post in this section and unless they enrolled, I have not included their names. We welcome your enrollment. As noted, please include your state, date diagnosed, type of cancer, brief description of your treatment and your status. After you have enrolled, we hope you will check back in at least once a year even if you had left this forum. A brief statement that you are still around and doing okay would suffice. The date of enrollment will be different from date diagnosed. The enrollment date is when you checked in for the first time for Roll Call.

Was 4 years in November. I forget sometimes and I love it! D-mn scar on my neck always makes people ask the dreaded question... usually in a whisper... "How are you doing?"

I usually say "I'm fine, how are you". Then I realize that they meant "how are you doing (with your cancer)" and then I tell them I was doing great until they reminded me about it!  LOL

I have a sore throat and I am hoarse a lot which is annoying but tolerable. I am a bit more fearful that every single ache and pain is something serious, but, I am sure attempted murder victims are a little gun shy sometimes too. ;)

I don't have much tolerance for the bulk of the people in this world taking life for granted, but I think I am just jealous. One thing for sure, I am glad to be on the top side of the grass.

For all of you just starting out, you can definitely do it. Get it done and get back to living.

Enrolled April 2012.  Stage 1 vocal cord.  Rads only, finished June 15th.  Several scopes/3 CT and all NED!!!  Voice better, appetite too good, feeling better but with the dark cloud of recurrence hovering overhead!  This forum has been a lifesaver to me, tho the side effects and recurrences that sometimes are discussed are heartbreaking.  Hoping and praying for us all!

I was diagnosed June 27, 2012 with T2N2CM0 Stage IV SCC (HPV+) primary right tonsil with left and right lymph node involvement.

First surgery conducted on July 3, 2012.  They conducted a right radical tonsillectomy, left tonsillectomy, partial BOT glossectomy and some other stuff that I dont remember.

Wisdom teeth removed July 25, 2012.

Started treatment on August 6, 2012 which consisted of 6 weeks of chemo (Cisplatin) and Rads concurrently.

Radical Neck Dissection performed on November 8, 2012.

First NED given on November 16, 2012.Cool

I recently returned to work and started my physical rehab, which is kicking my butt.  I went into my first surgery weighing 225 lbs and came out of treatment at 165 lbs.  So, i have a lot of work to do in order to return to my fighting weight.

As of today I feel great and look forward to deploying with my guys in the very near future.

Hope it is not too late!  Husband Pat diagnosed stage II cancer of epiglottis May 2008, treated with chemo & rads.  Recurrence in lymph nodes (4) with extracapuslar spread in April 2009, radical neck dissection, chemo and reirradiation.  For today NED on head and neck cancer.  Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) diagnosed 2000, finally needed treatment Jan - June 2012.  Complete remission (yes!), but fighting lung infections due to compromised immune system.  Overall, quality of life is good.  Working full time, playing full time and eating just about anything.  I worry always about recurrence, second primary and side effects, but husband does not.  He just lives life to the fullest each day.

Have not posted much lately, but always follow the board.  I am always uplifted by the victories, large or small, and am always broken hearted by the losses.  Each and every one of you are in my prayers always.

63-year old father who lives in the NJ / NYC area and newly diagnosed.  The news has shaken our family indeed but we're ready to get smart on this and begin the battle to conquer this! MRI scheduled for tomorrow so not sure yet as to the phase.   Any doctor recommendations would be greatly appreciated.  Should we have  both an ENT surgeon and an oncologist? What about a neurosurgeon? What are the best hospitals in the US for surgergy and radiation?

Many thanks to all & positive vibes to all!
