    T2N2NM equals tumour size 2-4 cm 2 affected lymph nodes  later changed to several after pet ct scan NM no distant metastatic .35 radiotherapy sessions and 2 out if 3 planned cisplatin chemotherapy sessions.   Now fast approaching the 2 years since end of treatment. Good luck to anyone starting out will always help if I can .Onwards and upwards to infinity and beyond.

  • Well I posted asking where the signatures were but that has disappeared. 
    Where are our community champions? There used to be a signature under Chris and Mikes names. It’s gone. 
    And yes. It’s quiet.

  • I liked my signature as it meant people could see at a glance what our diagnosis and treatment was!

  • At the moment you can only see sigs by hovering your mouse over a persons user name. The mods have got a list of about fifteen "issues" that need to be looked at by the IT team so may be a while before all sorted.

    What is a Community Champion?

    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.

  • I’m finding it a bit odd that I have to search for the most recent post in a thread - it used to come up automatically. So I missed Mike’s latest news as I was reading an old post in reply, not realising there was more if I clicked forward a couple of pages. I can be a bit dense but new members may also find this difficult. I’m one of those who doesn’t always embrace change, but really preferred the old site! I’m sure I’ll get used to this.

  • I agree with that, apart from getting used to the old sight wasn't easy but we do need to go straight to a new post and not the start unless you want to

  • You can. Tap the thunderbolt then the thread you want and it goes straight to the latest post
