I saw a post from a few years ago on this subject and read about it in another forum. They take one or more of the salivary glands form the area that's due to be irradiated and move them to a safe area during treatment. The result was very positive and while saliva production didn't return to normal pre radiation levels, it significantly improved saliva production after treatment.
I have an email into my surgeon about it. Anyone have it done or know anyone who did?
