I was diagnosed with cancer on my tongue the first of May this year. I went in to have the cancer removed on the 10th of May. They removed the left half of my tongue. They created a flap using skin from my leg. I spent two weeks in the hospital. I recovered for about a month and started Radiation Therapy. The first 5 or so treatments I did not notice much. Then my throat started to have pain swallowing. My Dr. gave me Miles Solution. It worked for a short time. Then my taste started to go. Almost everything taste salty. Thank god for Boost and Ensure. But the worst is the Blisters in my mouth from the Radiation. I am gargling with Baking Soda/Salt solution about every 2 to 3 hours and taking Loratab.
