    Great Annual Checkup

    Celebration

    Thursday was my annual checkup for my head and neck cancer, SCC of the right tonsil. I had the usual scope of the throat, physical exam to check for lymph nodes, and the usual ear, nose, and throat exam. All was good! I am dealing with prolonged side effects that will be with me from here to the final end. Swallowing issues, gagging, choking, breathing problems due to an esophagus that was fried by radiation and has now shrunk. I have been scheduled to have that stretched. So all in all, it's a good day! This makes 10 years since my diagnosis
