hello everyone, my father has been out of treatment for about 10 weeks, but is still in a lot of pain, under his tongue and shooting pain on his left side of his face, which goes behind his ear at time.. the pain gets so bad, about once a week it literally brings him to his knees in tears.. breaks my heart!... he did get about 8 biopsies done and they came back no cancer AMEN! i even think he ENT was shocked, but I thanked the big GUY upstairs! he was diagnosed in february with an advanced stage 4 tongue cancer.. he received 2 rounds of induction chemo, followed by 3 rounds of chemo along with 35 rounds of radiation, eeek.. so the doctors did explain to us that he had a very aggressive treament for a very bad cancer.. ugh just hate that word!.. he was treated at Rush in Chicago, which I am very happy with the team of doctors.. i just wish someone could tell us what to do.. he is still on the fentanyl patch, and now takes the norco.. he just wants to be back to work, on his bike and off the meds.. has anyone experienced this pain? can anyone give me some words for him.. he is getting depressed and moody, which i cannot blame him...
