        Keep your chin up... Take little walks, anything out of the Norm. My Head and neck came back twice after the first, had 75 rounds of rad, chemo and radiation. Neck dicesction all in a 1 calendar year. I have a - probably permanent - gtube. I spent 2 and a half years on the couch but gradually I'm back working part time. I tire really easy low staminer - Most likely from no solid foods - but I feel Alot more product...

            Hello.. Sorry you need to see these types of Dr.' s but the best ENT oncologist in my opinion is at Mass Eye and Ear his name is Dr. Kevin Emerick..I've been seeing him for about 3 years and he's well known and respected throughout MGH and Eye And Ear..

              Hi I'm in the situation only a little bit of fluids maybe a thin milk shake. I've had Two rounds of radiation exactly 1 Year apart.. 35 times the first time 40 times the second. I also worked with swallow therapist but no really big results. I'd really consider s stretching as well but kind of nervous of damage or cracking to the throat.. Good luck with your venture hope all works for you John Russo in Connecticu...

                Hi Susan... Funny you mentioned that I just went Friday to have that done at MA Eye & Ear in Boston and they were unable to do so because the opening is to small before the esophagus... I found a acupuncture Dr in Needham MA I'm going to try... Hope everything goes well with you! ~ John
