Hi everyone [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/hello.gif[/img]

Here's the latest update on my cancer treatments!

First off, no more chemotherapy for now! [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/Dancing.gif[/img]

Last week, my 3 doctors, Oncologist, Radiation Oncologist & ENT Surgeon, compared notes and they think it's possible to do surgery on me to possibly save my life! [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/Dancing.gif[/img]

Because the cancer has not spread anywhere other than my neck, the surgeon may be able to do something called a "neck disection" where the surgeon will cut out the infected lymph nodes. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/Dancing.gif[/img]

I went today for a very, very expensive, state of the art test called a PET/CT Fusion Scan. It is similar to a CAT Scan but they inject a "radioactive sugar" into a vein prior to the scanning. It was totally painless, although it scared the living shit out of me when the nurse, wearing this silver jumpsuit and helmet, walked into the room with a lead box. She opened the box and took out a lead sheilded needle and shot me up! She treated that stuff like fuckin Kryptonite! Very comforting! [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/mad.gif[/img] Anyway, it took about an hour and she said it came great! [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/Dancing.gif[/img]

The doctors will review the films and decide if the surgery is possible. I'll know in a few days! The surgery is the only option that can save me, the chemotherapy alone will not do it, it will only prolong the inevitable! [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/crybaby.gif[/img]

But you all know, I'm willing to do anything to get better!

Keep that awesome mojo and prayers comming my way! [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/Dancing.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/Dancing.gif[/img]

Thats great news. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbsup.gif[/img]
That would creep me out, the whole necking disection thing but I would do it in your case as well.
I hope it goes well, when is it scheduled ?

Either way good luck and keep us posted.
