In addition to radiation and chemo for my tonsil cancer, I had a radical neck dissection.
So, a question for other head and neck survivors who had radical neck dissections:
- did/do you have much physical discomfort? (7 months after my surgery, and my neck hurts all the time, the scar tissue is still contracting, and at night I wake up every 2 hrs with my neck locked up...
- did/do you do physical therapy or specific exercises to get back range of motion and train new muscles? how long did that take to help?
- has anyone tried, had results from acupuncture?
- how about massage?
Thanks in advance.
