Hey everyone, I'm new to the forum and fairly new to throat cancer. I was diagnosed in Sept. 07 and now am out about 8 weeks from last treatment. My radiation and chemo were given simultaneously
I had 38 radiation sessions and 4 chemo's. 2 cisplatin and 2 carboplatin. The cisplatin made me so sick that my Oncologist changed the poison for me.
I can eat anything I'm willing to spend time chewing over and over. My taste buds can't take sour but all else seems to taste OK. I have to drink something all the time to keep my throat from killing me when I swallow, still.
I lost my voice about three weeks into radiation and it hasn't returned yet. I would like to hear what some of you have experienced with voice function.
