      Good Day, My mom just finished 6 1/2 weeks of radiation last Friday, August 12th. She had to discontinue chemo due to nausea that landed her in the hospital for 3 weeks. :(  Now that treatments have ended, she asked when she could start expecting to eat more than an Ensure for meals? I think a part of her is terrified to eat because she's had severe vomiting for 3 weeks. I think as the nausea wears off she wa...

        Is it normal to receive chemo weekly for seveal months after radiation ends? Throat/neck cancer. Had tonsils removed. Not a candidate for neck dissection due to lymphnodes in both sides of neck being affected. Cancer is under the tongue and back of the neck/throat. Current treatment is 6 1/2 weeks of radiation with chemo weekly, then chemo will continue weekly for a 6-12 months after radiation ends.

          My mom was recently diagnosed with throat cancer. Had her tonsils and the 2mm sized tumor removed.  Her PET Scan results showed the cancer was under her tongue, back of the neck and her lymphnodes in both sides of her neck. Her first radiologist suggested a 7 week radiation treatment Monday-Friday, with chemo once a week, ordered a feeding tube and gave her a 60%-75% survival rating. This radiologist and her EN...

            Thank you for taking time to respond. I'm happy to hear your husband had light at the end of the tunnel. His treatment plan sounds a lot like my mom's. I worry about not having a caregiver for my mom. We don't live close, but I've been calling into all her doctor's appointments. Maybe it's good if my mom doesn't know what to expect, but I feel like one of us needs to research (that's just my personality though;).&nbs...

              Thank you for taking time to respond. I hope your husband has made a full recovery. My mom is doing great with the tonsillectomy, which I hope carries over to her treatments. I will for sure look into immune therapy. I've read a little on it, but will look into it more. You are absolutely correct that feels very rushed with no time to think. She met with a dentist yesterday who said her teeth are ok. I'm hoping that ...

                I completely agree. I'm trying to get backup plans for her since I live far away and can't be there to help. I was shocked that she would be able to drive herself every day. I mean, I hope she has the strength to do it, but I don't want her to feel that she has to do it if she physically can't.  Thank you and God Bless.

                    Thank you for this information. She just had her dental appt today. Again, Lots of information, but everything looks good right now. She'll just need to take care of her mouth during treatment. I'm so thankful to everyone for taking the time to share advice. It's so helpful and if you can believe it, calming. She meets with another radiation doctor on Friday because they sent her to an out of network Doctor (frustra...

                      Thank you for taking time to respond and offer advice. The Doctor thought my mom would be able to driver herself to and from the ration treatments for all 7 weeks. I'm nervous about that especially since everyone talks about how tired they are from the treatments. Guess time will tell. My mom had her dentist apt today and it went very well. It will be up to her to take care of her mouth throughout treatment. I'm ...
