    Thank you for the replies.  Yeah, mine seems to improve for a day or 2 then comes back.  I have the same issue in my shoulder on my radiation side.  Good luck.  Tony

      I finished my rad treatment in Feb. 2016.  My tumor was on my right tonsil, so my right side received the brunt of my radiation.  I had PT to help my shoulder get stronger, as I could barely lift it over my head after treatment.   I began working out and got back to relative normalcy. I got busy and wasnt able to workout for several months and all the sudden I started to have pain in my SC joint (...

        The last few weeks my stomach has been so irritated and I have been throwing up like crazy.  I decided a couple night ago it had to be the peg tube.  I'm doing my best to not use it and i have not thrown up in 3 days.  I'm leaning towards doing the same and getting this thing out.

            Tuesday I will be 8 weeks out as well.  I took a nap in the middle of replying to this note. hahah.  yeah, I feel like I could sleep all day as well. I walk a coupe times a day.  Try to go out and watch my kids run wild, but still I eventually end up inside crashed out.  If you find any tricks besides time, let me know. Tony

              Hey there, Tuesday I will be 7 weeks out of treatment.  On the one hand, it is much better in that you do not have to do all the daily treatment crap.  As far as my experience, people are very right, you continue to cook for weeks.  I repeatedly read on here 4-8 weeks, as I wonder if this is ever going to end...  I can say just in the last few days do I feel like my mouth is improving noticeably....

                I'm just checking on others experience. [Since I am sitting around all day just thinking/worrying...I'm sorry.]  I am getting sick a few times a day still 6 weeks out. There does not appear to be any main cause I can pin point.  At times I think it's because I waited too long to feed myself through the tube.  Others, its appear to be acid reflux which was a problem for me before I even had cancer. &nbs...

                  today is 6 weeks post radiation.  My mouth is still bad, but getting better.  I can use lidocaine and get some food down, but mostly still on tube. Over the past week or so my fatigue level has gotten ridiculous.  If I do not make myself get up and take a walk, I think I could sleep all day?  For the most part it seems odd the fatigue kicks in so late.  Is this consistent with anyone elses ex...

                    Nice work.  The other day I realized I could put liquid lidocain on my mouth sores and made it possible to get down some pudding and a couple bites of mac n cheese.  I was very excited. 45 year old man, excited about eating a small squeeze packet of pudding....life sure has changed.

                      I was in the same confused situation just months ago deciding to have surgery first or chem and rad.  In the end, I opted to do chemo and rad.  Part of my decision was 1. I was going to have to have chemo and rad anyways since I was also stage 4, tonsil, base of tongue, nodes; 2. I am in a smaller town and my ENT admitted he only does this extensive of surgury once a year.  It was going to take me some...
