My husband was diagnosed with stage IV throat cancer in March and underwent 7 weeks of radiation and 7 rounds of chemotherapy. The tumor was at the base of his tounge and around his tonsil area and was to large to remove with surgery. After completion of his treatment May 25th he has had 1 pet scan and 2 biopsies because of concerns. He is still on pain meds and in a lot of pain, and still unable to eat any food or take any fluids other than through his peg tube, even though after completion of treatment he was eating and drinking until the first of July. Because of the backslide the Dr's would like him to try the oxygen chamber. There is another pet scan scheduled for Nov 18th and we are waiting until then to make a final decision. Our question would be if anyone has any experience with using this therapy bad or good? This is a big commitment to make, but one we would willing make if we could get some relief for my husband. Thank you for any responses or thoughts.
