    Susan, I have never smoked and almost never drink alcohol unless it's a very special occasion...I probably average two or three drinks a year at most.  My lymph node biopsy came back negative for HPV and my oncologist thought it was a false negative, too!  I was lucky because O only had to get my bottom wisdom teeth extracted before treatment.

I was misdiagnosed for over a year before I finally got someone to pay attention to my enlarged lymph nodes. Rough treatment but I made it through. Thank goodness for the peg tube. I am 4 weeks out from treatment and eating and drinking by mouth. Terrible dry mouth and not much taste from the food but at least no more n...
