Reply to "New & unsure"

Afternoon all,

time fo. Quick update.  Had an MRI on Fri, in advance of the neck disection which was planned for yesterday, I also had an appointment on Tue to discuss the the results of the MRI

the results have now shown that an operation is now not viable, due to the increase in size and associated risks due it being in contact with my corroted artery.  The past I’ve news was that it has not spread, which is more important. tdthe lymph nodes have only grown so much due to the delays in undertaking the operation (originally told it would be Nov , re booked for Dec then cancelled again)  this will also rule me out of the PATHOS trail, which I was very keen to to in order to help others.

i will now be treated with Radiotherapy and Chemotherapy only.  I am dispointed but given how much it’s grown not surprised and the team are the experts in care! 

I have an appt tomorrow for the mould room, etc and with any luck should start the treatment in about 2/3 weeks.  Like everything I will believe it when it happens now, but know I will beat this.

tkae care and all the best to you all
