Biopsy came back positive, next step is scans on neck, chest etc to see if has spread then six weeks of radiation 5 days a week 90% success rate. This was a brand new growth that just materialized over the past month. Should be meeting with oncologist in next few days to a week she will dictate our what our vacation plans will be we were scheduled to be away 3/6-3/23.

Today’s scan results show no metestatic disease (has not spread).

That stinks Tom and I'm hoping that it hasn't spread at all.

I'm sure not the news you wanted to hear but sounds like they caught it very early. Maybe you now will be there when Ronnie and I are :wink:

That really sucks Tom. Really sorry to read that. Hopefully they caught it soon enough and the treatment doesn't effect your vacation plans. Praying for you.

Do what the medics tell you to do. So far, my following their direction seems to be effective. My thoughts are with you and Karen.

So sorry to read this but yes, it was caught early so you have that going for you along with the 90% prognosis. Still sucks. Like Ann said.. the island will be there waiting....
