I've been remiss in checking in with you guys for the last couple of weeks. I did just catch up with reading the new post and Marie, you seem to be doing great! I'm very happy for you.
I don't have much to report in the way of improvement. I still can only whisper and swallowing continues to be painful. However, I eat any and everything I want so I do have that to be thankful for.
When I saw my ENT a few weeks ago he mentioned that if I hadn't improved in 2 months he would recommend hyperbaric oxygen treatment. Has anyone here had that? If so can you shed some light on the experience? My throat is still quite swollen at 4 months post treatment and my perotid (sp?) glands seem to stay inflamed and painful. If there were some form of pain medication that worked for my throat I would probably be a lot less discouraged with my lack of progress. Nothing seems to offer any relief.
On a brighter note, spring is closer than it was yesterday! I'm ready for warm weather!
