5+ months post treatment, finally bit the bullet and ate in public tonight.
wish I could say the eating part was fun, but points for trying anyway. ;-)
taste was working OK, but the trismus is not fun. got down some seafood soup, a bit of pork fried rice (had to spit out the pork, yuk), and one jiao-dz (steamed potsticker).
some of the soup came out my nose. hope it wasn't too embarrassing for my companions, lol.
