Hi everyone. My name is Jamie, and I am the caregiver of Pat, my husband of twenty years Pat was diagnosed with tonsil cancer in late August 2013. He had a complete tonsilectomy, removal of 29 lymph nodes, and a bit of muscle behind the tonsil area on August 6th. He has healed from the surgery for the most part, but we are gearing up to start a seven week course of radiation therepy. Radiation has been suggusted due to the size of the lymph node at the time of removal (3.5) I am wondering if there are any things that I can do/buy that will help him get through this? I know it is going to be challenging for him, and I would like to help in any way I can to make things even the slightest bit easier...
