Diagnosed with BOT Squamous cell carcinoma. Had 3 chemo & 38 rad treatments - 5 dys/week ending 3 months ago... lost 55 lbs. Since then, I now have a double-chin like a bullfrog. Rad Dr. calls it a "Dewlap" which normally describes Iguanas or some doggy chins. It looks like I gained 30 lbs instead of losing the 55lbs I lost. Dr. says it is fluid draining into neck that used to be processed by lymph nodes which Rad fried. Has anyone experienced this? Does it eventually go away? How long does it take & does it disapear totally or only partially? It feels like firm jello under there.
