Hi all, had great news today, Had Butch's test results after call to nurse to discuss his swallowing problems. Cancer hasn't spread - so very, very relieved. Butch doesn't need to have an operation, treatment will be radiation and chemo - letter in post telling us when, Butch thinks she said this coming Monday at Preston (the sooner the better I say). We know it's going to be hard on him but it has made such a difference to Butch knowing that it hasn't spread, it's like a weight has been lifted, he just now wants to start treatment asap.
Butch is an ex-Rhodie who fought in the Rhodesian Bush War and is foundly known as "The Bushman" by family and friends - he's a fighter so we are keeping very positive and strong. We would like to thank everyone for their help and experiences and our best wishes and prayers go out to everyone on this site. Will let you know how things go. Chrissy & Butch
