Hi DaviR, regarding your question 1, I never had any PET scan in my life.My team of doctors did not arrange one for me and even when I talked about getting one at my own cost, my oncologist thought it was unnecessary. I am almost 3 years post diagnosis and I just had my routine appointment this morning and everything is clear and fine. I have MRI, CT scan and ultra sound as my follow up tests.As for radiation, I am not in a position to answer that since I am of a very advanced stage and received both radiation and chemo. No surgery though.


Karen stage 4B (T3N3M0)tonsil cancer diagnosed in 9/2001.Concurrent chemo-radiation treatment ( XRT x 48 /Cisplatin x 4) ended in 12/01. Have been in remission ever since.
