I am 55 years old and live in the UK. I was diagnosed with tonsil cancer after having my left tonsil removed in December. My treatment plan is 30 sessions of radiotherapy to left side of my neck and throat area. I have now had 8 treatments and already I am finding difficulty eating because of the taste. I know this is normal and I know its going to get a lot worse. In these early stages are there any suggestions on how to learn to live with this as I am really struggling to find things to eat, or do you just become accustomed to this. Just like to say also how helpful this site has been to me in understanding the side effects of the treatment.
