I’m delighted to say I was given the all-clear yesterday.
Diagnosed with stage 3 tongue/throat cancer last December. Treatment with Cetuximab and radiotherapy for 6 weeks across March and April which made me very poorly. Recovery has been slow and still can’t taste much but all other side effects gradually disappeared.
Following MRI and PET scans plus the longest wait of my life I was given the good news at 4pm yesterday. By 6pm I’d booked a cruise for me and my poor long-suffering wife.
Thank you for all your support and advice. By day 13 of treatment I’d wanted to give up but thankfully my wife refused to give me permission. So it’s time to start living again.
Hi Daddybear that's great news. You side effects and taste will keep improving for a good while yet. These posts just show people that they can get through treatment and come out the other side, with good results. Have a good cruise, me and my wife love cruising. All the best.
So it’s time to start living again.
Enjoy your cruise....you deserve it and thanks for letting us share your good news
And Mrs Daddybear.......well done for keeping an eye on him
