Hi everyone, I just want to know if anyone's having problems opening there jaw after treatment. When I did my first radiation for NPC I lost some movement in the jaw but I was still able to open my mouth about 1 ½ inch. When the NPC came back the doctor did radiation again and I could only open my mouth ¾ of an inch. From that time to now I only have ½ inch of movement in the Jaw.
The Problem with this is trying to eat, but I still get it in there by using a smaller fork. I tried Therapy to help open it and also used a Thermo Bite I got off the internet, none of it worked.
I would like to know if anyone else has this problems and what you are doing about it.
