Just had to tell someone so thought I would post it here. Dont normally make posts like this, but I am about to burst with this info!
The first week of January 08 my grandad was diagnosed with cancer of the throat and chest and given just 3 months to live. It has spread to more places in his chest and his adrenal gland. He has been having trouble with his balance and thought it had spread upwards from his throat to his brain (we had been told it could)
Mum has just called from the hospital with my grandad. The throat cancer consultant (3 of them!) have all been checking him out and said that, not only has it NOT spread to his brain, but its completely disappeared from his throat!!! They have discharged him from that clinic completely!
The balance problem is just because he is old (78 last week) and he just needs to use a zimmer when he goes out. He still has the cancer in his chest and adrenal gland, but we have already had 9 months extra with him and you wouldnt know he was ill from looking at him! Those extra 9 months have meant he has been there for my 21st, christmas, found out my cousin is expecting a baby, and more.
