I have been reading the discussion boards and benefit from your comments and experiences during the past 5 months. My husband finished 7 weeks of radiations and chemo at the end of August for his right tonsil cancer. It's been 2 months since his last treatment and he still has bad pain in the back of his throat. He hardly ate any soft food as the pain got worse after he tried any food, even the fresh apple/carrot juice.
The recovery is so much slower than we expected. I think we both are depressed, especially him. As a caregiver, I am not sure how much longer I can keep up the positive optimistic attitude. When will our life be normal again? even though I know the normal is not the old normal anymore.
