Hi I'm new here, My mom was diagnosed with stage 4 base tongue cancer that has spread to lymph nodes in her neck had 6 doses chemo/cisplatin and 40 doses radiation. Last treatment was August 13 2014. Shes having a neck dissection Jan 15 on both sides and is terrified she's almost 5 months out now and is having alote of tongue pain has anyone else had this? If so what did you use to treat it? Oh and yes had peg but dislodged and had it removed almost at end treatment. She's lost 75 PDS.she use lidocain and Tylenol. Doesn't like eating anymore from pain we was told it was nerve damage from radiation. Any advice on what to do please I hate seeing her like this she went through enough hell for the 8 week treatment. Thanks violet1982
