My husband diagnosed with a type of throat cancer wherein they performed surgery and 35 treatments of radiation. During and since the radiation, he's been having extreme difficulty swallowing. It's been 3 weeks since the last radiation treatment. Can people who have had radiation to the throat/tonsil/neck area let us know how long it will take before swallowing food won't hurt. Thanks.
