I had every intention to work through treatment but my employer terminated me on Friday, my last day at work before beginning treatment on Monday. With that said, there was no way I could have worked while undergoing treatment. Tonsil cancer patients receive Cisplatin Chemo which is one of the highest nause producing chemos. I had virtually no strength and what little I had I needed to fight the battle of my life. I refused a feeding tube in the beginning - bad idea. Two weeks into treatment and weak as a kitten I was begging for one. Diana

I work on a freelance from the house now. I have two children, and the wife who earns a little. It is necessary to earn money somehow. At first I needed money for treatment, and I didn't know what to do. Advised me to take the credit or to sell the house. But I had small savings and I began to look for operation on the Internet. I helped to do homework to students https://writeandgood.com/online-homework-help, I wrote articles for the websites, I filled the websites with goods etc.

I finally got the pet ct scan and it showed nothing anywhere else, just the original primary right tonsil which is in the lymph in the submandibular gland.  They said no surgery which I was surprised at.  I meet with the radiologist tomorrow.
