Howdy everyone. It has been a while since I have posted a thread; but Mark is complaining more and more of "tightness" in his neck. Last night for the first time, he described it in a way that I could understand better. He said it was like having a constant muscle spasm in his neck, and he is combating that pain all day, but not EVERY day. We do not know if this is a result of surgery or radiation. I will remind you he had radical neck dissection, where they took all of the lymph nodes and the muscle in his neck, but spared the nerve. (left side) He had 6 weeks of radiation with 5 doses of chemo therapy. Can anyone relate or shed some light on this painful, fairly chronic experience.
