Thank you for sharing that, it was very importnat for me to hear. Monday was the verge of a panic attack for myself, of to my GP to head it off at the pass, which workded but I need to be more vigilant if I can be, I am committeed to that as that is something I can hopefully have some control over - how I react to my feelings and my fears! I hope the MRI goes well - Thanks Eric

Hi all, I have been diagnosed with SCC head and Neck, in my Lymhp nodes on the right hand side of my neck. It has been 2 and a 1/2 months, I have had three rounds of chemo each round lasting 6 days. My Oncologist says if i want to dot the "I" and cross the "T" the i will do it. After this I have 35 days of chemo and radio combined. This is the hardest thing I have dealt with. I am 43 and did noit even feel sick from the cancer, I worked full time, and led and active life. I have heard everything from they will remove your Lymhp chain, to not being so gloomy as it is HPV + we treatment will have a very good impact on the cancer, It is so confusing what to believe and think. I am trying to be positive and keeping it in the moment it is just very tough today and it probally doest help that i am only just home from chemo - the psychological battle is intense, anyway i just needed to share that, thanks for reading.
