Neck Dissection Question

Had a radical left neck dissection three years ago.  35 or so lymp nodes were removed.  lately I have noticed the area often gets clammy, cold, and wet feeling, often while I'm eating ( no I don't need a bib ).

Has anyone else had a similar experience?

Hey brother.., just a shout out, long time no hear from you...glad to see you doing well...other than your question.

I can't offer any help toward your question (other than probable nerve damage), but you know someone will offer up their story soon...

Best,

John

I'm glad i'm not the only one with this problem. I also feel like something is crawling on my neck. It is tough to survive the treatment sometimes

is likely what you are experiencing.  After surgery around the parotid salavary gland, this is an occasisonal problem.  Here's a reference.

I don't know that I've seen that come up here before.

Thank you all for your responses.  Pat, I checked out the link and that could very well be what is going on.

I see it more as a nuisance than anything else and I am certainly not alarmed by it.

Thanks again and I hope you are all doing well.
