Not likely I’m thinking, After enjoying a ‘failed Biopsy’ on Tuesday, my ENT man called yesterday.
He said that he had spoken to the Radiologist who had conducted the biopsy, and he now thinks that he may be able to source the Tumour by a different route, and wants to give it another try.
I am grateful of course, but as I pointed out, it has been 2 months since the onset of the ‘Tumour Palsy’.
Now we are talking about another two weeks for the new biopsy, then another two for the result.
My GP has been extremely supportive of my wish to ask for a 2nd opinion, and I now have an appointment with the original ENT man who diagnosed my Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) in 2018. (His special Interest is neck Tumours)
I also heard from my Haematologist yesterday and she is very happy with my recent bloods, the vital ones of which have nearly halved. So she now tells me that intervention is not now urgent.
I am now on my own little extra special ‘Watch and Wait’ whilst this small tumour continues it’s vacation trip, from my Mandible to my Skull Base.
My NHS man hopes that it may be possible to slow it down, as eradication seems unlikely.
I am so grateful to this forum for allowing me the opportunity to ‘Offload’ .I am aware that many of us are, or have, gone through similar or worse, traumatic journeys.
I take my hat off (Again) to all the wonderful volunteers and staff who make it possible for us to: ‘Offload’
All the best to all, Ron
