Just a quick report. I saw the ENT late this afternoon and after he had examined my throat using a scope he declared that I was clean. No sign of a tumour, ulceration and other bad things. The nodes in my neck were also examined and appear to be clear. Very, very relieved. The next hoop I will have to jump through is in 12 weeks time, when I will have a PET/CT scan. Together with the scan results and the ENT's examination I WILL (that positive attitude stuff again!) be pronounced clean. Once I have remained clean for 2 years, I can consider myself cured.
Not able to have a party though as I now have thrush in my throat and I am nursing a sore throat from hell. Take care!
