My husband,Buzz, finished radiation/chemo on January 10th for a Stage IV BOT cancer. He still has his PEG and uses it for water and 2 cans of Osmolyte per day. Otherwise his oral intake is liquid. His throat is only slightly sore and his tongue is not hurting. However, any solid food(no matter how soft) feels weird in his mouth. He does have trouble moving it around in his mouth. Because of this, he is reluctant to try solids. Would speech therapy help for improving his tongue function? Has anyone had this problem?
