Possible Strike 3.


Recommended Posts

Pet Test yesterday showed possible cancer in lymph node in non radiated side of neck yesterday.  5 months after radiation and just started feeling better from it.  Doctor visit went well otherwise, my speech, eating, swallowing, and taste have returned to almost normal.  They were surprised about that.  I was surprised because they said there was a minimal chance of damage and they expected me to be much worse.

Biopsy scheduled on anniversary of first surgery.  A time that I really wanted to celebrate 2 years of free and clear last year at this time.  So much has changed in the last 12 months.  Back to pins and needles and that quesy feeling in the stomach waiting for results.  Probably won't get results until after Thanksgiving.

I am fighting a cold, it could have been that causing the flare up.  Doctor said it is not where he would expect it to be next if it is cancer.  There is hope that this is a false alarm.  But after going thru all of this the last few years, I am ready for anything and will beat this one out too.  I still have all options to attack it with, chemo, radiation, and surgery because I did not use chemo this last time.

Prayers are needed and appreciated, again.

Every time I walk into that office with my chin up, someone takes a poke at me.  Time to start ducking and covering.

JD, at this point you have survived. Your next step, apparently, is to survive again and conquer.We are all on your side. Is there anything you want or anything we can do?

Crap.  Man I dunno.  If you're feeling good I wanna tell you to leave those doctors alone. Stay as far away from them as possible and don't let them chemo you to death.   If you're feeling poorly, can't do anything, and have nothing to lose THEN let them practice on ya.   

That's probably the wrong thing to say, but it's what I feel in my heart and I'm not good at keeping my thoughts to myself.      Good luck, brother.
