Hi. My husband is lying on the couch, miserable after 14 IMRT treatments. He can't swallow, and won't eat. He's had a few teaspoons of yogurt yesterday and a few teaspoons of soup today. He says his throat hurts too much. he is also getting chemo once a week and that just about kills him. So, sore throat and barfing...I'm desparately worried and am threatning a feeding tube again (he had one for a week after they cut out the tumor on his tongue and of course he hated it.) I'm losing my mind. I'm thinking of telling hime to quit and take his chances before his mouth is totally ruined permanently. And the messages on this site make me feel worse...recurrance after 13 years, taste and saliva still diminished after two months...
Any miracles out there??
