My 77-year-old Dad was diagnosed with stage 2 squamous base of tongue cancer last summer and had 7 weeks of daily radiation which ending the second week of October 2011. He was in oustanding shape before the radiation. He tolerated the radiation well and did not need a feeding tube. He lost some weight but still kept eating soft food.
It has been seven full months and he still cannot taste alot of things.
I am curious about the experience of others.
Does the sense and taste of food ever come back and, if so, how long did it take?
Many thanks for all of the support!
