I joined a while ago but not posted before. I have tumour at base of tongue. Have had chemo and radiation, I've felt great and felt like a bus ran me over but missed my head so came back for another try!

I live with my partner, no pets, no children together but they are all grown and flown.

  • Hi Like green

    Just wanted to say hello and echo what Dani has said well done for making it through treatment its a hard slog that as we know doesn't end on the last day of radiotherapy.

    Im 13 weeks post treatment   and feel like I might be turning a corner with small improvements I hope you are the same x

    We all have slightly different treatments chemo/ radiotherapy regimes and amounts given over varying weeks , and we are all unique in the way our poor bodies and minds cope ,recover and repair … but hopefully you are in recovery and managing 

    Sending you a smile and a hug

    T2N1M0 tonsil cancer HPV+ finished CRT June 2023

    Recovery is a tough road.... normally starts after chemoradiotherapy....most of us posting here have experienced the many ups and downs associated with Chemoradio recovery.....nice to have other H&N suffers to go to/bounce off.

    Best of luck

    Peter.

  • Hi Peter just 20 visits to Radiotherapy no chemotherapy thankfully, had the first dose today, no problem , next dose at EIGHT o’clock in the morning then another blood test , to quote Tony Hancock, I’ll be walking around with an empty arm
