brm1949 Posted August 3, 2004 Share Posted August 3, 2004 Well, today I saw my ENT and got the results from the biopsy of my parotid gland. Metastatic, moderatly differentiated necrotizing carcinoma to intraparotid lymph nodes (2 nodes). Metastatic moderately differentiated necrotizing squamous cell carcinoma to lymph nodes adjacent to parotid gland (2 of 3 nodes). Right parotid gland: No significant pathologic change. Dr says a I will get low dose radiation once I heal in a couple of weeks. After I left him , I noticed my left arm swell up when I used it for even the smallest task. Went saw my primary, he odered a ultrasound, found blood clot in left upper chest. Sent me to my onc, started me on lovenox injections and warfarin tablets. Said this is not uncommon with cancer patients, especially after surgery. Said once they get the warfarin level right I will probably be on it for the rest of my life. Thay are also setting up more scans and test. Has anyone else had blood clot problems? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
