May 2, 2012

I thought I had a cold and a minor soar throat. Went into my doctor who thought I had tonsillitis and gave me two weeks of antibiotics. I took them and they didn't help. He referred me to an ENT who took one look in my mouth, sat down, and told me it was cancer. He took biopsies of the tonsil which confirmed that it was cancer. He then referred me to the Porter Cancer Clinic and my surgeon. The rest is history...

Begin Erbitux treatments February 13 2012 and finished on May 2nd.

I begin radiation February 20, 2012 for 6 weeks.
