Looking to hear from anyone who has had chemotherapy (Cisplatin and Taxotere) and developed swelling of the tongue. and if so, what was done for it. My husband had SSC of floor of mouth, had surgery to remove tumor, neck dissection, chemo/radiation last June. There has been a recurrence of the cancer in the neck area and is now on the above-mentioned chemo treatments, with three left (total of 9 treatments). He has a very swollen tongue making it hard for him to swallow so has a feeding tube now. Would appreciate any information you have.
