5 Years Clean

I hit this milestone in June.  My last radiation was 6/20/2013.

I am grateful for my life and also grateful for this site that helped me get through everything I needed to.

I wish everyone here great success in their battle and with life.  If there's any questions about feeding tubes, phlegm, chemo, radiation - or BOT / tonsil cancer in general please reach out!

2 years? - you're there!

I truly like talking to people that have our dreaded illness and helping them however I can.  I also have those bumps and bruises but compared to what we went through, and what the outcome COULD have been......I'll take it! :)

PS - I am 58 and finished treatment at 53.  I was a gym rat before getting sick, turned into a skinny frail old man, and am back in great shape again!!

Congrats!!  That gives me hope! I am 10 months post ... struggling with side effects but I am pushing through one day at a time. It is because of people like yourself and every survivor on here that make us feel better about this terrible disease.  So glad for you!!!
