I was diagnosed with Stage IV Squamos Cell Cancer of the tongue and some lymph nodes in January. I had 36 radiation treatments and 2 chemo. On June 10 after a CT scan I was declared cancer free. The problem is, 5 months later I just don't feel good. Constant tiredness, a very sore tongue and occasional nausea. Still have my feeding tube, the only thing I can tolerate is ice water. My pillow in the am still has drainage and this morning there was blood. Also have almost a constant lower back-ache. I take a pretty good walk every morning and do routine housework (I am a 67 yr old woman). Just seems like I should feel better by this time. Very Frustrated!
