My mom had surgery last month for tongue cancer which was pretty radical. She has undergone alot more than she anticipated with the surgery and recovery and is now starting chemo and radiation. She is having a very difficult time with depression and nausea. I am having a hard time getting her to talk about how she is feeling and her treatment so I can understand what it is she wants and how to help her. I could use a few good suggestions if anyone out there has any. Her biggest problem right now seems to be her reaction to the Ethyol they are giving her to protect her salivary glands. I am at my wits end. Help.
