I was just wondering if anyone has had tongue paralisys post NPC treatment? And if yes, is there anything that can be done?
I am almost 5 years post NPC treatment and last February the left side of my tongue paralyzed and now it is the right side. Also have vocal cord paralysis (mostly left sided), dry mouth, thick saliva, trismus, dammage to neck muscles, you know, the usual ...
I can only drink liquids and it takes me a long time. I'm trying to avoid the feeding tube because I had it when going through treatments and had a very hard time with it. Most Doctors here (in Canada) are good to say that everything is radiation related but don't really do anything about it...
So I was wondering if you guys could help me with your experiences... If you have suggestions... Thank you all
