We made the same decision as you. Husband was told exactly the same numbers by adding the chemo. The side affects were just too much at 70 years of age to warrant it. He finished his 35 rounds of radiation treatment and is doing well. 8 weeks post treatment, the neck has healed the swelling is gone and his taste buds are starting to return. He looks healthy, although he tires easily still. His PET scan is early April, I will post the results here. How are you feeling? Have you had your PET scan.
