I had surgery for stage 4 squamos cell cancer in my throat (and removal of approx 50 lymph nodes) on June 28th. I had my 33rd, and final, radiation treatment on 15 October. My salivary glands aren't working and neither is the "Salagen" I am taking to help produce "spit". Most foods taste horrible, but I keep experimenting...lettuce/tomato salad, pot pies (who knows why?), oatmeal with apple sauce, some smoked sausage, and scrambled eggs are all tolerabe (not necessarily tasting GOOD..just palatable) What foods have you been able eat? I live in New Mexico and love foods with green and red chile...they burn the living daylights out of my mouth and tongue now. Am looking for some hints and culinary delights.
