hi there- my husband just completed 60 radiation treatments & 9 chemo teatments for stage 4 squamous cell at the base of the tongue. We have 2 questions hoping someone can shed some light on:
1) Due to some of the saliva glands being permantly destroyed will food eventually dissolve in his mouth without saliva glands so he can swallow food without the aid of water?
Any response will be appreciated, thank you, Pam
