Hi fellow dx. Just want to say hi and let you know that I'm still doing great and loving life. Dx 2009 right tonsil scc and 1 lymph. 34 rads 3 cisplatin. finished treatment April 2010. Have all taste buds back. Saliva is still helped by chewing gum. Yes sugar free. Tinnitus still there but only notice it when I mention it. Like now. Grrr. Little deafness. Similar too industrial deafness. Family are all wonderful. Business is thriving. I hope this is inspiring to anyone that may be anxious. tx has to be done. And it's doable. Life goes on. Don't worry about dying. It's inevitable. So enjoy living. You are still alive. Love and prayers to you all. Jen from Ozzie land xxxx

Pascotty......and the reminder that life goes on.  Glad to hear you're doing so well....gives hope to those of us that are just short-timers out of treatment.  I'm still waiting for taste and saliva...ha!

Love to hear the encouraging news. It's a year since dx, cancer of lower jaw, for me, surgery, rads and Cisplatin. Finished tx 05/2012. One clean PET and 2 clean CT's w/contrast.  Just when I think I'm going to have to come to terms with a long term side effect, I see some improvement.  Definitely an on-going process. Nice to see someone doing so well.

Nice post, even nicer with you doing well.  As I slip two Xylimelts in my mouth just before bedtime I can relate to the lack of saliva.  Very happy for your taste bud update, that seems to be the tie which binds us all.


Great to hear from you, I will look forward to always good posts.

Congratulations Pascotty from fellow Aussie (ex pat in Florida). So good to hear positive things happening, even though I didn't know you we certainly share a bond (especially with the saliva thing). Take care and all the best for a bright future.

regards Michael
