        Hello, I had the exact same kind of cancer on my tonsils and the base of my tongue, from the HPV virus also.. I went through chemo and radiation but was told there wasn't any kind of surgery that could be done. I'm 4 months out from my tratments and still can't swallow, have been told it may take up to 3 years before I can. Hope your husband gets better, with better results than I had.
