HI JAMES, I'M A 68 YEAR OLD MALE THAT HAD TONSIL CANCER. IT WAS STAGE IV. MY TREATMENT WAS RADIATION AND CHEMO. IT WAS DISCOVERED IN JAN 2008. THE TREATMENTS I GOT WAS SEVERE. FOR FIRST FEW MONTHS AFTER TREATMENT I WAS WAS FELLING GREAT, BUT I UNDERWENT THROAT STREECHING BY A ENT DOCTOR THAT DID IT WRONG. AFTER THAT EVERYTHING WENT DOWN HILL. I WENT TO THE EMORY FOR A SECOND OPINION AND WAS TOLD I WAS OVERRADIATED. LATER I WENT TO MAYO CLINIC(THE BEST IN THE WORLD) THEY TOLD ME TOO MUCH RADIATION AND INPROPER THROAT STREECHING. I NOW HAVE A FEEDING TUBE AND A TRAC. MAKE SURE TO GO TO THE MAYO CLINIC AND YOU CAN RELY ON THEIR TREATMENT. MAKE SURE YOU FIND OUT ABOUT THE SIDE EFFECTS. I NOW HAVE VERY LITTLE QUALITY OF LIFE, BUT I'M CANCER FREE. I GUESS IT'S WORTH ALL I'M GOING THROUGH. LOTS OF LUCK AND MAY GOD BLESS YOU. THANKS FOR LENDING YOUR SHOULDER TO CRY ON. LAST BUT LEAST WHEN I THINK I'VE GOT IT BAD, I GO TO THE CANCER CENTER AND SEE PEOPLE IN WORST SHAPE THAN I. HAVE A GOOD NIGHT. @james2003
