Hi, im Alan and i have been reading a lot of these messages over the past week and finally decided to join. Lots of wonderful advice and encouragement.
I need all i can get.
I'm stage 3 SCC base of tongue, only one tennis ball size node, none others affected but no primary was found. Tomorrow is #15 rad treatment with 15 more to go. No chemo.
Currently nauseous, fatigue, slight rad burns to both sides of neck, stiffening of the neck, saliva down to about half, dry throat, slight mucosa, few sores in mouth, tastes are about 50% gone. I know everyone reacts differently to rads but is this relatively normal at the half way mark? I'm afraid of what lies at ahead.
