I am in the same situation.  My problem was I had ulcers all over my mouth and tongue which prevented me from talking and made me so sick that I threw up all day for months.  Had several trips to hospital.  I asked for my peg tube pretty quick.  My Problem is I am still developing issues 8 years later.  The doctor said scar tissue is still growing.  I wish I would have known about all this before I decided to do my treatment.  I might have gone and got other doctors opinion before I started.

Sorry that you are having to go through your problems

I had my 9th throat dilation yesterday.  It had been 8 weeks since the prior one, and ALL progress was lost.  In conjuction with the vocal cord/breathing problems popping in the last few weeks, the doctor is recommending a feeding tube - 6 years after treatment.  I didn't expect it, but he concerned with my choking on my meds, dehydration, and lack of nutrituion.

After discussing, we decided to do it - it will be done on Monday.

Honestly, this whole radiation scar tissue causing me problems years later caught me off guard.  Only this past April did I find out the radiation scarring never stops.

THe doc wants to get this in before he can't use the type he likes best.

I'm kind of looking forward to NOT having to stress out 2-3 times a day when it is time for meds!

I went to the doctor yesterday to find out that radiation scarring never stops.  I could not believe it.  I am 8 years out, but never gave up my peg tube.

Is it just me or does it seem this type cancer and treatment seem to have more side effects.  It sucks.
