i am a cancer survivor of neck and throat cancer. I had a tumor removed from my neck in 2000. I had 37 radiation treatments. I had a feeding tube for three months til I could swallow again. I went back to work as a nurse with this feeding tube. I lost and regained taste. I have permanent dry mouth. Now after 10 years i still have so many side effects----but i am alive. I am a nurse and my favorite paients are ca patients. I know the pain and anquish that cancer brings--but i do know that you do not give up. Thats the only waay I made it this long.
