    Ok thank you. I am sorry you are in pain as well but I find comfort in knowing I am not the only one. I have done apt, massage, and accupuncture. So far no relief. I will let you know if I find some method of relief. Cheyenne

      I have a question? Does any one suffer from muscular pain on their radiated side?

        This journey will have a profound effect in both of you. Like I said before my surgery was after the chemo and radiation. The freight train you are now on will continue you to race down the track. My cancer started on tonsil, went to base of tongue then lymph node. My ENT put me on that freight train and within a month I was in treatment. God speed and many prayers. Cheyenne

            You have to get over the fear of eating. Quit using the tube because it's easy. If something smells good, take a bite, chew it well and drink water. I was so freaked out about not ever being to eat again I forced myself to start. I choked plenty of times, got scared but kept doing it. I can even eat steak if it is tender or medium rare. I don't eat it often though. You have to conquer the fear in your mind about eati...

              Hi Clint. Yes I repeated those exact words often. I am doing incredibly well. I had to conquer my mind about many things and it was a battle well fought. That being said, I pretty much eat whatever I want now. I have actually gotten to help a few others with their returning to food. I had no choice in my decision as the feeding tube formula was being rejected by my body. Yes there have been many dark times and the ...

                Hi, Sorry to hear of your diagnosis. I have had both chem/radiation and a left neck dissection. If I were you I would go with the chemo/ radiation first and if that doesn't kill it all then the neck dissection. Cancer is a beast! The treatments are harsh. Don't let anyone sugar coat it. I too had stage 4, started on tonsils went to base of tongue and involved a lymph node. My ENT put me in touch with the oncologi...

                  I am in my third month out from 6 chemo and 36 radiation treatments for throat cancer from the HPV 16 virus. I also had surgery. I was wondering if anyone else went through treatment with Ménière's disease. My problem is with eating. Anything that I can eat which I find appealing is to salty. Anything I try to cook at home is so un appealing my stomach turns just thinking about it. I used to eat mostly salads and ...

                    LOL Augustus, I watched the same Diners Drive Ins and dives. I have a list of places to try out. Two months out of treatment I was able to begin to taste. Most things sound unappealing to me until I eat it. My problem is that I was a fruit and salad girl till this happend as I have to watch my sodium levels due to Meniere's disease. I am starting to eat a little of both but anything that is appealing is not very heal...

                      Hey Charley15! First and foremost I hope this finds you hanging in there. I am 3 months out from my treatment from throat cancer that went from tonsils to tongue to node on left side. I also had a feeding tube put in before I started treatment. It was a life saver. I had 36 radiation and 6 chemo treatments. Everyone that has replied to you has given you good advice. To answer one question I had to have surgery after...
