    Another red flag after reading your post - it is NOT what he is enduring but YOUR ugly PJ pants that are driving him up a wall.  One comment that comes to mind is "I am so sorry but if you hadn't pushed it, I wouldn't have lost my temper and hit you".  This may sound like a stretch - but it is NOT!  He is not acknowledging that HIS problem is causing his behavior but it is all about what you are doing ...

        We are all here to share information.  For instance, I found out post treatment that it is common to have problems with our thyroid post treatment.  I found this out on CC after I wound up in the hospital as a result.  I had a root canal in Dec - crown finished in Jan - and now I have a tooth that is crumbling at the gum line.  I told my dentist when I left his office in Jan - "I will see you in ...

          I understand where Annie is coming from and I am coming from the same place as a cancer survivor who lost my first husband to cancer BUT I am also an educated, experienced domestic violence counselor.  I believe I gave your fiance some slack in my earlier post - that grief can have very serious effects on someone but there are other things that are sending up red flags through your own words.  I know ...

            My dentist also made molds at my oncologists instruction but they were initially for me to wear during each and every radiation treatment.  I now use them for flouride treatments but I have found that 7 1/2 years post treatment, I am having increased dental problems.  I do the prescription toothpaste, the flouride gel, flossing, and I will add in the mouthwash.  No one is suggesting we use o...

              Hi Jeff - Good post!  After 7 1/2 years on CC I have either been through, knew about, or heard of almost everything suggested.  When I do hear something new, it is very often from you.  My dentist has had me on prescription toothpaste for years but I am going to buy the Crest Complete mouthwash today.  I've had a root canal and crown already this year and headed back next Wed ...

                    Hi Patty - I am a 7 1/2 years tonsil cancer survivor so I can emphathize with what our husband is going through.  Even though we had cancers that are considered head and neck cancers, they all seem to experience little differences in side effects. Is his problems eating due to swallowing issues or is the foam creating the problem? I have what I call a little bit of a lisp now.  On...

                      Hi Rich I had tonsil cancer and while it is considered very similar to esophageal cancer, there can be "minor" differences.  With head and neck cancers we generally have radiation which plays havoc with the muscles down through the esophagus.  This results in difficulties swallowing and we have to have dilations ever so often to stretch these muscles.  VitalStim therapy done by a Speech Pathologist go...

                      About Dlynn1210

                      Patient
                      Head and Neck Cancer, Tonsils Cancer

                      I am married and the mother of five grown children and 14 grandchildren. I was diagnosed in 2007 with SCC of the left tonsil and have been a member of CC since shortly after beginning treatment. I underwent chemo and radiation at CTCA in Zion, IL and received my last clean scan in Sept 2012. I found a wonderful support system on CC who really understood what I was going through and come back often to offer words of encouragement to those who are now traveling where I have been. I thank God daily for guiding me to CTCA and for guiding me to Cancer Compass. I had a tremendous support system with family and friends but there are not enough words to describe how I feel about my CC family other than to say I would not have made it through as well as I did without you.

                      UPDATE - I am now
                      7 1/2 years clear of cancer. My oncologist considers me cured of head and neck cancer. No more scans!!!
