I had SSC on my left tonsil in 2006 and base of tongue on the right side in 2012. I got rads only in 2006 and rads and chemo in 2012. I am now almost one year post treatment and have still have partial anemia (low hemoglobin) and severe damage to my swallowing function (epiglotis is stiff and non functional) and my saliva is still MIA. I have apparently been aspirating my food and liquids since 2006 but have never gotten pnenomia. I am interested in your stories regarding saliva, swallowing, necrosis etc.
