A while back i had a sore throat problem and was seeing my doctor about it. We could'nt cure the problem and i srarted swelling on the side of my throat. Doc says we need to do a cat scan so we did and was diagnosed with throat cancer. We have been with my doctor for over 35yrs.and when he said i was going to the University of Iowa Hospitals to the specialists' i didn't question him.   Fast  forward:  After 2 trips to Iowa City for pet scans and other tests the cancer is just located in my throat. Thank the Good Lord.    With surgury and radiation they say it is cureable. I will loose mfriends backy voice but to me its a fair trade if they get it out of me. My pre-op is tomarro and surgury is thursday. I have a whealth of family and friend back here and wanted to include my family here on GTtalk. Please keep me in your thoughts while i go through my journey. So i might be out of the loop for a while but i WILL return. Luv ya all. Randy G. :wave:

Fabman, I'm certainly sorry to hear of your illness, but am glad the doctors have a diagnosis and a treatment.  I wish you and your family the best in the days to come.

Best of luck to you Randy!  I had some cancer cut out of my neck two years ago and the doctor fixed me right up.  I'm sure your specialists will do the same.  They see this stuff day in and day out.  Its just another day at the office for them.  We are all pullin for ya!

 

P.S. tell the nurse you want a sponge bath if she's cute!  :thumbs:

About eight years ago, I had cancer on my vocal cords. Surgery and radiation, and all is well. Radiation is a drag, but quite do-able. We're all here for you!
