I would just like to share a happy note! My Husband was diaonosed last June 08 with Cancer ' base of the tounge stage lV ' He had just had a sore throat on one side for 3 weeks, so it was a shock when we found out it was a stage lV cancer. He had a very rough regin of Chemo & then Radiation therapy. We almost lost him 1 time. He was in the hospital for 3 weeks. But continued the therapy when he regained his strength. he finished the therapy at the end of Nov. 08. He had to wait about 2 months to get his PET scan. He got it in Jan. 09. His cancer is completely gone. We are so very happy. We prayed a lot. It will take him about a year to recover from the intenese thearpy. He just turned 56. So my words to Anyone with cancer never give up. Good Luck to you all!!

This is such wonderful and encouraging news.  My husband finished 10 rounds of chemo and 37 tomotherapy treatments 8 weeks ago.  He is still struggling with lots of pain and debilitating mucous.  He has a feeding tube; hopefully he will turn the corner soon.  The mucous seems to be the worse of all of it.  We are doing acupuncture, the transderm scop patches, soda and salt rinse - anything and everything people are suggesting.  I know that the mucous will subside and he will begin to regain his strength.  God bless you and your husband for continued good health.

Cheryl,

The mucous was so very intense, I think it took about 1 month before it got better,  the mucous is the bodys natural way to rid the poisins 

I could not beleive how thick it was and my poor hubby, I could do nothing. Hang in there it will go away! My husband still has pain and is on meds and has a peg tube to feed him, everything tastes terrible to him.But we keep trying different foods. I can deal with that. Cancers gone yay :- )

God Bless you and yours

Susan

Susan- Thanks for the encouraging words.  This is a hard cancer to conquer - we were warned of that from the beginning.  It is the hardest to treat, cure and the hardest treatment on the patient.

Good luck and continued good health.  God Bless You!
