    That's what I figured Susan. Radiation is going to be more of a issues.

      Anyone have any experience with Erbitux? Sounds like my treatment will be Erbitux and radiation. I am scared of both but just wanted to hear some experience from others with Erbitux.

          Hello everyone- I was diagnosed 8/11/15, since then as i'm sure you all know it has been a whirlwind of Drs appointments. I'm just really overwhelmed which i'm sure is to be expected. This is very scary. I am being treated at MD Anderson in Houston, and am thankful that I am close enough to go there. I just have a few questions, I'm sure i'll have more as I move through this. I met with my head and neck surgeon on mo...

            Hollye- I met with my Rad/Onc last week and will be getting fitted for my mask and mouth stent soon. I to am trying to be strong for my husband, kids, family, and friends. I've somewhat accepted that it's okay to be afraid from time to time during this ordeal. This is not a journey any of use expected to be on. It sounds like you and I will be going through treatment at similar times and if you need a friend I am her...

              Thank you all so much. Although I hate that we are all on here for one common unfortunate bond, I'm grateful that you are all here with me through this. I appreciate all the responses. I go to my first appt at MD Anderson Monday with head and neck surgeon. I have rad/onc Thursday, dental Friday, and med/onc the following Tuesday. Can I ask how many lymph nodes you all had swollen? I have one on each side of my neck, ...

                You guys are so amazing. There's not much at this point that will completely erase the fear but I feel very fortunate to have come across this forum and all of you. I go for my first appt with my head and neck surgeon, rad/onc, dental onc, and med/onc next week. I'm hoping that I could be a candidate for Proton Therapy. From what research I've done it seems like it may be a less dreadful form of radiation. Has anyone...

                  Thank you so much for your response. It sounds strange coming from me to tell you to not be scared but don't be. I would say if you have a good CT that's a very positive thing. My CT showed a suspicious node before I was diagnosed so I am happy to hear that your CT didn't show anything suspicious.  Best of Luck to you. I hope you feel better soon.

                    So today the oncologist confirmed the fear I've had the last few weeks, SCC that she suspects started in my tonsil. I noticed a swollen lymph node in my left neck in May. I saw my Primary care doctor who referred me to an ENT. The ENT examed me and wasn't too concerned, started me on antibiotics and scheduled a 6 week follow up. No change after antibiotics. I returned for my 6 week f/u and was told I needed a tonsill...
