Just to let everyone know that hubby received his long awaited (and fought for) results of his PET SCAN. The consultant told him that he had responded very well to the treatment and there was no sign of cancer on the scan. To say he was elated was an understatement.
He still is dealing with the side effects of treatment but plodding on and living with or sorting those.
A big thank you to this forum and all those that have helped with questions, tips etc.
I will continue to drop by to offer our insight to all the newly diagnosed.
Love to all

That's great news. Thanks for letting us know.
Totally spot on with your motto!
All the best.
That's a big stepping stone done there BrandyGirl; I know you both realise that the journey's not done yet and "the cancer that keeps on giving" will make things rocky at times for a while yet but it's a brilliant piece of news to get, got mine (with very similar wording) in the post!

Metastatic SCC of right medial piriform fossa plus four malignant lymph nodes diagnosed 8th October 2013. Modified radical neck dissection November, thirty-five radiotherapy fractions with 2xCisplatin chemo Jan/Feb 2014.
That's great news brandygirl !
It's always good to hear positive vibes,I myself got the all clear little over a week ago and although going forward I,m taking week by week the all clear first petscan means a lot.
Plus I think people just starting on their journey can take some solace from positive outcomes .
Good luck going forward ! !
Great news! Congratulations to you both!
We also had similar news recently and my hubby got an all clear pet scan after a lot of ups and downs from a suspect MRI scan. Like your hubby, my hubby is still dealing with some of the side effects, but great to hear your good news on this.
its taken a while for it to really sink in this end, as you know only too well, it’s been a journey and great to get this result.
Hi Brandy girl

i give a honest account of my experiences with tonsil cancer
My husband also recently got all clear following biopsy after inconclusive post radio PET scan. Yes still some side effects but they won't stop us living life to the full - we booked 2 holidays the day we received the results!
To those newly diagnosed and their loved ones, in the bad times you may feel despondent, but it IS worthwhile!
