I'm naturally cynical and naturally optimistic. I know weird pairing.
Hopefully this will fall into the early detection camp and you'll get through it quickly.
My sister went through it last year. It sucks for a while and then you get on the road to recovery.
The success rate is actually pretty good now. 30-40 years ago it was not, but that was then and this is now!!
Keep your chin up and ride out the rapids and pretty soon you'll be back in calm water.

So sorry to hear this, Dave. Is the chemo to shrink the growths prior to surgery? Give Patty a hug for me. Cancer indeed sucks.

Our prayers are with you and Patty. Terrible way for her to start her retirement.

Dave/Patty - really sad to hear the news. Watching my Mom go down this route (in 1981-83), I understand what you're about to go through.

At least a silver lining is that the Cleveland Clinic is just up the road from Medina. The James Cancer Center at Ohio State is one of the top centers in the country.

My co-worker was diagnosed with a cancerous mass under the bridge of his nose. The local med center thought it was one type, with required invasive surgery to his face. The James determined it was a different type of cancer and was treatable with chemo and Proton therapy radiation, so the radiation was focused at the mass, thus saving the brain from the massive amounts of radiation.

He returns to work next week, cancer free.

This week we went for a wig fitting along with CT and Bone scans. Next week we meet with the chemo doctor and the radiation doctor. We hope to find out when treatment will start at those appointments.

She is going crazy with the waiting.

Check into scalp hypothermia. It involves cold applied to the head to prevent/minimize hair loss. It seems to work for some patients.
