I've been out of touch for awhile, surviving my treatment, but today I received my last radiation treatment and had them throw the g#*! mask away. I received Amifostene/Ethyol shots throughout and still have good saliva production.....although I can't taste anything. I have bad radiation burn on my neck ....I guess I didn't use Aloe and Aquaphor consistently enough. I lost too much weight but avoided needing a PEG, so far. I'm told it will be another week or two before I start noticing feeling bettter, but at least the radiation is done now. It was tougher than I anticipated, but also went faster than expected.
