    Oh No (Just Diagnosed): I had an Endoscopy for swallowing issues when a tumor was discovered in my stomach. Ultrasound and CT Scan followed And diagnosis shows a size of 44mm. I was sent to a surgeon that wants to do open surgery with a wedge cut. I went for a second opinion and chemotherapy is recommended first then surgery. I am currently waiting for a response from a third cancer treatment facility more familiar with GIST treatments, for one more opinion.

    Celebration (Remission): It has been 4 years since my discovery of Tongue Cancer. Taste buds mostly came back. Sweets are not as sweet as they used to be.

    Radiation (External radiation ): End of treatment. Neck was fairly sore and painful and used lots of medicated lotion. Lost appetite and about 15 lbs within a couple of weeks. Taste buds gone for now.
