Long term side effects

I am a 3 1/2 year survivor of neck and throat cancer.  I received radiation, chemo and a partial neck dissection.  I am interested in any long term side effects from treatments.  I am experiencing B 12 deficiency, thyroid problems, extreme tiredness, tingling in hands and feet, etc.  Has anyone experienced any of these symptoms post treatment?

Manedsmom, 

I am sorry to read that you are having these side effects. Unfortunately, I still have issues from my treatments as well. I am on medicines for some of these issues you listed. 

My Thyroid eventually quit on me, so I am on medicine for that. Have you had your TSH levels checked when you have blood work? The Thyroid not working properly will cause Fatigue. 

Neuropathy is another side effect, yes, I am on meds for that too. I am currently a 14 year survivor.

My Best to You and Everyone Here
