Wow to all of you brave people I am so thankful I found this page. Background my brand new 51yo hubby was diagnosed in Nov 2018 with cancer in his lymph nodes, only found when our beautiful English Staffy head butted him in the neck and the sweeping didn’t go away after 2 weeks. Off to the doc I tell hubby. Doc gets him to do an ultrasound the neck scan. Fast forward 4 hours later I am called home from work to be told the scan shows metastatic squamous cell carcinoma so biopsy 3 days later same diagnosis specialist tells us they think the primary maybe in his tonsil, so Xmas eve last year they take his tonsils and base of toungue. Febuary starts 7 weeks radiation and 6weeks of once per week chemo My brave new hubby handles everything quite well but the last two weeks were horrendous the pain he endured was excruciating to watch He had a peg tube but had it taken out post 3 weeks after treatment as it drove him mad can eat hurts at times tastes like shit apparently I am so thankful to read this thread as I must admit it post 6-7 weeks now and I had started to worry as twice he has fainted (endone maybe) and lately his neck hurts again and I was starting to get Terri my worried as he was I have just shown him this thread and he is feeling positive again so thank you and god bless you all xxx Belle
