6 Years On

6 years ago today I was in theatre having a total rhinectomy due to cancer of the septum of my nose, also a lateral neck dissection for lymph removals.  I did have further surgery a few weeks later due to unsatisfactory margins that was partial Maxillectomy.  I also had 6 weeks of radiotherapy.  I went back to work a year later.  Thought I’d share a bit of positivity with you all.  I have a friend aswell who’s nearly 5 years clear of back of the tongue cancer.
