I just wanted to ask some questions to any of you who are ahead of me. I'm now 5 mos post radiation for tonsillar cancer. I am still on my feeding tube and my saliva is still not flowing normally. I find myself getting very depressed because I cannot eat like I used to and the Holidays make my depression even worse. I guess I just need reassurance from someone that my saliva will get better and that I really will be able to eat again so I won't be tied to this ball and chain (feeding tube). Even though I am thankful for having the tube, I feel that the recovery is so very slow and is just dragging on and on. Did any of you experience these type of feelings? Did things get better for you?
