Hubby had last radiation treatment today. All in all has done really well. About a twenty pound weight loss but is still taking all nutrition by mouth. No PEG tube. Sore throat but never lost his voice. Had terrible radiation burns at weeks 4 and 5 but they healed really quickly (may have been allergic to prescription creams and aloe!). Skin looks great, huge relief at not having to go everyday and looking forward to recovering taste and saliva. Thanks to everyone here for answering questions and giving 'heads up' on treatment expectations, etc. Hoping for clear scans in the next couple of months and to living life as a survivor! Prayers to everyone on the site and appreciation for your openness and bravery.
