My husband is 7 weeks out of treatment for SCC HN, Occult Primary. He's having such a hard time sleeping at night, such a dry mouth that wakes him constantly. The doctor suggested using a humidifier to get moisture in the air. We bought one at a local drugstore (Vicks brand) but it was so noisy that neither one of us could sleep though it. Before we invest in another one we'd like to know if others have had success using one and what brands are effective -- and quiet!
Other than that he doing really well. Still on PEG tube due to everything tasting horrible but able to swallow without much difficulty and off all pain meds, which really helps his mood, focus and outlook. Hurrah! He's walking daily but that is about the extent of it. Pretty tired all day, I'm sure lack of sleep at night contributes to that too.
