I have written a couple of posts, but have had no replies so far :( My husband was diagnosed with mec 11/05/09. He had a partial maxillectomy on 12/21/09. His pathology report just came back that cancer was not in the bone, but was in the nerves. They are discussing whether or not radiation is worth the side effects at this point. The cancer was labeled moderate, but is being treated as high.
I was wondering is there anyone out there who has refused radiation? Has anyone used natural therapies? My husband lost 20 lbs. in 1 week and has been having a tough time eating/drinking the smallest amount of anything. He was unprepared for how large the hole would be, and is learning to adjust. He just had his opturater extended to cover more of the hole which has helped his speech. It seems as if he was just sent home after surgery with hardly any info.on how to do certain things, like swallow etc.....He did have the best day yet yesterday - I pray he is turning a corner. Any info would be appreciated!
Any info would be helpful!
