Reply to "New & unsure"

So, had the appointment on Thu.

i took a note book with me, but was told not to take notes and just listen, and that the MacMillen Nurse will take the notes for me (which was a relief to be honest) the consultant, who was fantastic (Mr Sipaul) Explained what we already knew about the primary cancer being at the back of my tongue/tonsil and the secondary being the lymph node on my neck. 

I am very lucky that is is early, and after 2 operations over the next 4-6 weeks I may not need any further treatment., but tests will confirm that. Apparently  I have a T2 N2a M0. 

we then met the MacMillen Nurse Nikki, she was nice, gave us a lot to read and we chatted about the next steps, along with advice, and support available to me, us and the family 

for me the next big steps are telling my parents, and our children which I am dreading but know that the support is for them as well as me, plus there and some useful tips and info in the MacMilllen book I was given.

i have an appt next week, to meet the Multi Discipline Team (I think that's their name), so will see how that goes.  

In themean time it's time to start telling those closest to me.  I am so lucky my wonderful partner is there to help me
