Hi to all,
I thought it would be nice to share some good news. I'm almost 6 months post rad and doing well. Saw three of my doctors in the past week or so, and they are all happy with my progress.
My ability to taste is much better. It still fades while eating, but it should only get better in time.
I'm getting used to my new lisp that losing a third of my tongue created. I think my speech bothers me much more than anyone I talk to. They understand me fine.
Many weeks ago it felt like I would never feel better and be rid of painful mouth sores. I came to this site and found so much support. I am thankful.
I hope this will give others encouragement. The effects of chemo and radiation will get better, even though it may not feel like it ever will. Don't give up.
