My fiance was just diagnosed with a T3N2 tumor in his larynx. We meet with the oncologist on Wednesday. The recommendation is to try chemotheapy to see if the tumor responds. If it does they will continue with chemotherapy and radiation. If the tumor does not respond he will have surgery to remove his the tumor and his larynx. Can anyone give me some direction as to what we have in store for us. My biggest concern is that my fiance is very small and now is only 109 lbs. What can I expect from chemo and radiation and what will the recovery fro surgery be like? I'm so worried and don't know what to expect. Thank you for any information you can share.
