    I would have the radiation for sure.  The chemo would be a hard decision.  The dam cisplatinum killed my hearing and no telling what else.

      I had the radical (right side) neck surgery 7 years ago.  It's rough and the radiation/chemo is even worse.   Hang in there and stay positive.  There are better times coming.  Slowlane

First the Pulmo Doc took a shot at going down my throat and could not get to it.  Then, the local lung Doc wanted to carve out half my lung the next morning. Thank God my little Indian Doc (radioloigist) just blurted out "I can shoot that thing with 5 bursts of radiation and give you a 78% chance o...

                I am getting very close to 900 days out on a Notice of Disagreement.  In order to get an appeal hearing you need a Form 9 and a statement of case just to get into the BVA que.  Still waiting on those 2 items.

Good luck and welcome home.  Slo...
