that is excellent news.Had surgery this morning
received email from insurance they are working on it.
doctor did drastic removal, i am on a a feeding tube for a week. He feels he has it all and this time it won’t come back.
You need to head back into ER, unless you are still at the hospital/surgical center. Lots of hugs.gmouth and nose started bleeding over an hour ago. Ugh
I am in the hospital. Waiting for surgeon to come. I am being fed by a feeding tube through my nose and an I’ve to hydrate. So glad I was kept overnight.You need to head back into ER, unless you are still at the hospital/surgical center. Lots of hugs.
@rapmarks --- I'm so sorry to hear this news, I've been travelling for work and just getting a minute today to look at TUG. Your going to be in my prayers and much love to youI am scheduled for surgery Friday, hoping to move up to Wednesday.
Cancer is back, pretty widespread.
took a lot of calls, about 17 to 20, to find an ent to do biopsy. He looked and said cancer was obvious. He found me a head and neck oncologist surgeon. So I canceled surgery in Wisconsin and am having it here. My son’s family just arrived so he can take me for surgery and I will stay one or two nights in hospital. Much easier for him to fly to fort Myers area instead of Wisconsin dells. Not as long a drive to hospital either. Get to recuperate in warm weather. Need prayers that this time it doesn’t return.
Do you have one of your children or friends who can check on you a few times a day?The plan is to send me home with the feeding tube in my nose. I am to crush my meds and send down the feeding tube, and to pour my nutrition in four times a day, and flush in between. See doctor in five days to see if healed well enough to be able to go to a liquid diet. Rather nervous about this plan.
Stay Strong!Fifth day in the hospital getting meds and nutrients through feeding tube in my nose. Can’t wait for it to heal so I can go home
