Having successfully completed the prescribed treatment of 35 radiation sessions and 2 chemo ( last one cancelled due to low white blood cell count )I am waiting on the scan for the all clear. The oncologist is confident the lymph node is cactus despite it still measuring 1.5 cms at week four. She said only one or two cases still have a lymph node after this treatment and the next step would be to operate. Has anyone had throat P type cancer ( due to HPV virus not smoking ) and still had a lymph node after treatment ? I am dreading more chemo and am recovering so well after treatment that more treatment and a return to being seriously unwell would be tough.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
