I was diagnosed with Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the tongue on Apr 19, 2012, after Excision biopsy Conducted on Apr 14. Carcinoma was identified as Stage 1, T2, confined to Left margin of the Tongue.
Underwent Brachytherapy in 5 sessions of 4Gy each, followed by 25 sessions of 2 Gy each Rapid Arc IGRT + IMRT on the Varian Machine from Apr 8 to Jun 13 2012.
I have lost most sensation of taste, and am having difficulty chewing, swallowing and am confined to taking totally bland semi-solids without any salt even.
I am interested in learning about experiences on recovery of those who underwent similar treatment.
