First radiation treatment tomorrow (side of tongue and both sides of neck). Six weeks.Have read a lot of people’s experiences here, and I know that everyone’s body responds differently - the unpredictability is annoying. Anyways, just wanted to say how helpful I find this forum to be, how kind everyone is, and what a great source of advice Christine has been. No choice but to plow ahead and remind myself that in a coupe of months it will be over with. I’ve been very lucky to have avoided a flap in surgery, to have avoided chemo, and to have a good prognosis, so trying to be thankful and appreciative also.


Stage 3 cancer of right side of tongue
Tumor: t2.
Lymph nose spread
Partial glossectomy and neck dissection (2/12/20)
Never smoker
Scheduled for six weeks of radiation starting 3/25/20

Keep that positive attitude & you got this. Yes, there will be pain and discomfort. Keep your Oncologist informed (I met with mine once per week) throughout your treatment, as they can prescribe everything you'll need to get through. Before long, you'll be ringing that bell and on your way to recovery. Try your hardest to maintain a steady intake of fluids and calories everyday. Eat what you want while you can.

The number of people involved in my care (@ a CCC) is humbling. Doctors, nurses, therapists, support staff, & of course, family. With everyone fighting for me to beat cancer the least I can do is fight back and win!
