"The good news is that the scan showed negative activity -- that is, reacting to the radioactive sugar -- from your neck down. And in the neck region, there was a very small reaction, so I'm sure it's nothing. But, we should have it checked."
That was yesterday. So, we quickly scheduled a biopsy this morning.
"Your throat and neck are gonna hurt for a few days," my ENT doc announced with a very apologetic tone after describing what samples she would take. My first time seeing her. I'd put Diane Keaton in the role.
So, after a few shots to deaden the back of my throat and the side of my neck, she grabbed some skin samples from inside my throat followed by some procedure where she sucked stuff out of a lymph gland just below my jaw (several times).
So, we'll have the test results in a week.
Gauging from the fact that there was no activity in most of my lymph system, they've assured me that this is going to be nothing.
