I was diagnosed with Nasopharnyxgeal Carcinoma in July 2005. I had my back lower teeth removed 3 on one side and 2 on the other. I have a feeding tube and already completed 39 treatments of radiation. Now I am recovering from that. The doctor said no sergury is need at this time he wants to wait for 4 months. My problem is that I have alot of mucus in my nose and my mouth is always gets dry when I have it open. So I have to concentrate breathing thru my nose. My ears are plugged and ringing always. My Chemo starts in first week of December. I only swallow water alittle. Can anyone tell me how to deal with this problem? I am getting tired of it and it is bring me down. I know it takes time but how much time. (depends on the individual I know) Please provide some help!! Thank you very much in advanced!!!
