it's been a rough few weeks.. the pain pill deal is not something i ever wanted. without them, impossible to get through the day. i have been mostly sleeping in the daytime in little segments when i can. i can't get a good sleep session in the evening, i can only sleep in on one side, then the pain spikes, and it's a nightmare.
got new meds, 3 X stronger than before, with a 4 per day allotment . they work, but not completely.
so , since last blog - 20 days or so, the tumor has been re-shaping, and moving back around my neck. very painful , and hard not to think about.
when the tumor re-appeared in January, my goal was to have it "gone" by October, and seeing that that was not gonna happen, i scheduled with a doctor a while back and saw him yesterday. this went nice & smooth. i need to have a CT scan, but until then, here is what he suspects.
the neck tumor is eating my facial nerves, and my lymph nodes are active, one with a chick-pea size tumor ( i found that one 2 weeks ago) . the cancer in my throat / tonsils needs to be cut out.. the skin covering the blob on my neck will have to be removed , it has become cancerous. the right side of upper body is getting weak also
worst case - i will look like when Peter Griffin stroked out on the family guy
if it all goes well, maybe 3 - 6 days in the hospital, and a week at home
the CT scan should be next week, with operation soon after those results
so that's the latest update.
there are some new food angels!! thank you..
i really appreciate you all keeping track of me with this. i know i've dropped the blog ball a couple of times, but now that it's "crunch time" i will be more informative .
send good vibes please, don't worry
