    I am truly sorry to hear that your husband is having a difficult time after treatment.  My husband has been very blessed indeed, he has been done with treatment for one year and is doing really well.  He can eat anything he choses except really spicy food.  He has not been able to gain any weight really but has not lost any more, we found out a month ago his tyroid is not functioning correctly due to t...

      My husband is now one year out from Treatment.. He is cancer free, praise the LORD...

            Thank you for the info, went and purchased the extra soft toothbrush.  He has been using a soft but will appreciate the extra soft as the treatments progress. Thanks again and have a BLESSED day!

              Thank you so much... I know the swolling will become an issue, trying to be prepared for it.  Adding extra calorie benecalorie to his meals now so that he does not lose weight this early in... He is also drinking extra calorie boost some too. I am adding electrolytes to his water, as he drinks LOTS of water due to dry mouth.  They have him on a presciption Mugard for mouth issues although we are early in so...

They di...
