Living with head and neck cancer - my video journal - Week 5

Hi all

Still trucking along on my second course of chemo-radiation for head neck cancer, having just wrapped week 5 of 7.  Latest vlog tracking my progress is up on YouTube at https://youtu.be/ZH1TeGQinmo

 

 

Cheers

Re: Living with head and neck cancer - my video journal - Week 5

Hi Shane, thank you so much for your video.  You seem calm and settled and this brings me great comfort.  I’ve recently been diagnosed with metastatic lung cancer and the medical team think the primary may be in one of my tonsils which was removed last week for the purpose of a biopsy. I meet with the medical oncologist in a couple of days and will find out then as to whether the biopsy has revealed the primary.
Anyway, thanks again for the video and I’m now goi g to have a look at your other one.

cheers

Hi Claire

 

Sorry its taken a while to reply, I've been busy enjoying life 🙂

 

I also hope your treatment has gone well and you are achieving a cure?

 

Unfortunately my cancer has also reached my lungs and is no longer curable - I am on a palliative immunotherapy program that is however holding things under control and I'm still well enough to go about fairly normal activities.  We pray it keeps on working for a very long time.

 

I'm really glad you've found the videos helpful - keep fighting 😉

 

Shane
