I have been fighting this cancer for over 4 yrs now. I have had 9 nose surgeries and am looking at my 10th coming up. I have lost 3/4 of my nose and am now looking at losing my eye. Everytime they operate I get about 6 months down the road and it comes back. I am trying immunptherapy at the moment but it doesn't seem to be working I have 6wks to decide on more surgery before it will be inoperable. Because it is heading for a nerve to my brain. I think my greatest fears are not being able to drive and scaring my grandkids.
I'm sorry to hear about your fight with cancer, especially for years!
It must be very discouraging have 9 surgeries with an upcoming 10th!
I guess only you can decide what your want based on the risks and quality of life.
I'm not trying to encourage you one way or another, but eyesight loss in one eye is not usually a barrier to driving, although that might depend on your personal circumstances.
And rest assured, your grandchildren will always love you.
Please let us know how you go.
Just an update on my condition. No more surgery needed and I'm keeping my eye. The immunotherapy has started working and has shrunk the cancer to about half its size. It looks like everything is on the right track now and I will be on this treatment for the next 12 -24 months.
Thanks for your thoughts.
