I had my port removed today!!! I have come full circle. I had a CT scan two weeks ago and all looks good. 60 pounds lighter and eating well. I see my ENT and oncologist every 4-6 weeks. Cancer free and thankful! It’s been a while since I been on this site, but you all have been great in your support!

Seeing posts like yours is always so encouraging, especially to newer members who are going thru heck while getting treated. Your post gives other hope they too can get thru it and go on to be cancer free.
