Tongue Cancer,” A Killer Ripening In My Mouth”
I can’t sleep.
My mind ambles with the things that are to come.
I was diagnosed a couple weeks ago with place 3 tongue cancer. The size of my tongue cancer is length 2, as far as oral cancer exits it is pretty small.
They are calling it a stagecoach 3 because it has spread into one lymph gland so far. I had that gland removed and that’s when they found the carcinoma.
Mouth cancer, oral cancer, esophageal cancer and thyroid cancer are all killers if left unchecked for to long. Due to the locating they are extremely hard to operate on and the
tissue they are growing in is very delicate.( oh yea, and very necessary !)
What’s in store for me now is very difficult for me to comprehend.
I will be coming 7 weeks of radiation therapy Monday-Friday, each morning.
I will get chemotherapy once a few weeks but it will be in such a low-toned dosage that I will not loose my hair.
Do to the location of my tongue cancer which is at the base of the tongue( can not be seen without bent mirrors or a remit) radioactivity is the only course of action.
Tongue cancer is a awfully invasive cancer. It spends the muscle and tissue. It doesn’t time grow on top of the material it exhausts the tissue. It is announced squamous cell carcinoma.
Here is a explanation of squamous cadre from http :// www.medterms.com;
Definition of Squamous cells
Squamous cadres: Flat cadres that look like fish proportions. The message “squamous” came from the Latin squama entail” the scale of a fish or serpent .”
We have a lot of squamous cells. They make up most of the cells in the outer bed of the skin( the epidermis ), the sections of the respiratory and digestive treatises, and the linings of the hollow organs of the body. We are more fish- like( or serpent-like) than we may think.( aim)
Because of its invasive sort tongue cancer eats important muscle mass at the back of the tongue. Through radiation therapy this is gonna be killing the material that is infected with the carcinoma, thus killing half of the muscles on the back of my tongue.
The doctors tell me that after 6-8 months I should be able to swallow highly soft menus and liquid.
But as for feeing until then, in a few days from now I am getting a feeding tube inserted into my belly. I will be ingesting adult formula through a tube for the next 6 months.
The radiation will be killing my thyroid gland, I will have to take medicine every day for it for the rest of my life.
The radiation exposure while killing the bad tissues will too be killing a great deal of good tissues.
The process will be similar to a second degree sunburn every morning 5 days a week for 7 weeks.
My cancer doctors tell me that I will liberate all the skin on the outside of my neck where the radiation beams are concentrated much like a sun shine that they are able to blister up every day with each new treatment.
Therefore generating a large raw flesh country on my cervix that I will have to keep a ponderous stratum of lotion on.
At some pitch in the next couple weeks I will be going a subcutaneous embed for a morphine drip.
The tissues inside the throat area and back of the tongue is likely to be raw equivalent to that given to countless sunbathe feelings as well.
They said some people have to have a tracheotomy because their throat material swells to the point where they can no longer sigh properly.
This all sounds abominable and I am sure that it will be extremely agonizing and very close to intolerable.
However the alternative is no therapy which will guarantee extinction within 6-10 months.
So I study I can take the sting, my doctors predicted they would deter me “snowed” for as long as needed so that I can accomplish this treatment.( my affixes may get slurred !)
As this tongue cancer process develops I shall be affixing almost daily with my advancement, ponders, thoughts and medical evaluations.
I am not doing this blog for your pity.
I am documenting this horrible outing so that maybe some of the books will come to this understanding……I inhaled cigarettes for 25 years, I ground a little tobacco, I suck my fair share of booze, all of these are directly related to cheek cancer, tongue cancer, oral cancer,
esophageal cancer and thyroid cancer.
Maybe, only maybe, a few people will read and follow together with me on this tour and stop smoking, chewing, boozing excessively and cleaning process “peoples lives” so they will not have to
go through this.
The journey inaugurates ………..
