I had 40 rad and 6 chemo treatment for throat cancer, the last radiation was 4/3/07 but still have fairly acute sensistivity to spices especially pepper with my tongue and to some extent the back of my mouth or palate. I thought this would be gone by now, but still dealing with it on top of lack of taste and dry pasty mouth. Any suggestions on how to eleviate the burning or does anyone have experience with this fading later after treatment. Also my tongue has lots of cracks and crevices that weren't there before the radiation, I assume this is perminent scaring from radiation.
