    Thank you so much for this reply. A wealth of information. Mike has since gotten a PEG tube, on Wednesday. Thursday was such a great day! Got some good calories in, carefully and in small amounts, Then the anesthesia/pain meds for surgery slowed his GI motility and blocked him up. Yesterday was pretty miserable, but interestingly our loal surgeon who put in the PEG, suggested 60 mls of sesame seed oil. We ada that ab...

        Hi Susan, Thank you so much for your very thoughtful and detailed response. I never received the notification, and could not even find my post on this site.

I am repeating it here, hoping for timely advice: My husband was diagnosed with HPV16 Oropharyngeal Squamous Cell Carcinoma on June 24, 2019. He is (was) a very active, fit 65 year old orthopedic surgeon who had no symptoms until June 11. He was working in NY, and following a mild sore throat, he felt a fullness in his left tonsilla...

                I'm a 58 year old woman whose husband was diagnosed with OPSCC HPV-16 in June, 2019. He underwent 7 weeks of TX at MDACC in Houston. Chemo = 6 Erbitux, 5 Taxotere, and 33 Proton Radiation TXs. Seeking all kinds of information regarding these first months post-chemo & Rad, and would so love to hear from long-term survivors of HPV+ throat cancer. All recovery tips greatly appreciated.
