I was diagnosed on May 9, 2013 with Squamous Carcinoma of the left tonsil pillar. I started treatment on June 19th and I have had 12 of the prescribed 35 radiation treatments so far. No chemo as the pathologist said mine was in the very early stages.
So far I can eat but it’s a job. I eat soft stuff like cream of wheat and my taste is gone except for a weird paint like taste that everything has. I try to stay hydrated and use the prescription magic mouthwash and hydrocodone for pain.
I am taking my treatments at Forsyth Hospital’s Davis Cancer Center in Winston-Salem, N.C. About a hour and a half drive for me one way.
I’ve been reading and lurking since my diagnosis and decided to introduce myself.
That’s all for now.
