A wee update. Husband has a diagnosis of: T3 N2 M0 today.
We are so relieved that it's M0. That's what we were most worried about. The N2 are all in the same area as the tumor so that's also positive. Although it would've been better if if was N0 or N1, but it is what it is.
They main thing is that the cancer is contained fo the moment. We meet with the oncologist on Wednesday and treatment will commence 2 to 3 weeks after that.
The plan at the moment is to go with the ECX regime for 4 cycles then a break of 3 to 5 weeks before "the op". No chemo is being done post-op as they have found that people are simply not able to cope with it so hence the 4 cycles before hand.
Husband is highly motivated to get these "fcukers" (lymph nodes) blasted and the "bar steward" (the tumour) cut out! 😁 Luckily we haven't lost our sense of humour through all this which I think is helping - a lot!!
He is continuing to put on weight too which is excellent. All in all we are in a much better place now we have a plan and next steps.
Will keep you guys updated if that's ok.
