I was diagnosed in Feb. with throat cancer. I underwent 7 weeks of radiation(31 sessions)and 7 chemo sessions once a week. I decided against the feeding tube and have been able to swallow throughout the treatments. I am 7 weeks past my last radiation treatment, the mucous has subsided, I'm less tired and sleeping better through the night. My throat continues to be a problem. Although I am able to eat SOFT foods, it still hurts to swallow and it also bothers me to talk a length. My doctors say everyone heals differently, but I'm wondering how before my throat improves.
