After lurking on these boards almost exactly 2 years, Alex has finally posted!! A pearl of wisdom for all those who come after? A word of comfort for those currently going through it? Or maybe comiserations for those similarly determined to move forward?

No!

A complaint that the survey didn't have metric measurements and he had to recalculate his height and weight into feet, inches and pounds!!

I say again. Bloody cheek!! smile His idea of humour.

So the OsbLow team now has a 100% participation in the survey at least

I was a bit confused by his post. Thanks for the explanation! I am also very thankful for both of you completing the survey. It is very important to future oral cancer patients.

As if any of us were surprised that Alex is a cheeky fellow.
(for some reasons, my British friends all call me a cheeky bastard so it must be a compliment right?)
Good for him
