Maggie had her first follow up appointment today one month post Radiotherapy. The result is positive if not conclusive. The neck tumours appear to have gone but there remains a "mass" on her right side base of tongue. Radiologist suggests that treatment may still be working and swallowing will become progressively better. Maggie must gain weight however between now and the next appointment which is 9th April. We have been given advice on diets and encouraged to start Maggie back on solids, mushy cereal, mince, mashed potatoes pasta etc.
The radiologist and ENT consultant looked into Maggie's mouth which made her gag, and muttered something to each other which I could not pick up.
For the moment the emphasis is on putting back bulk so we will see how it goes.
Keep you all posted, as we move forward, Alan
