I had NPC (stage 2) and finished treatment 2 weeks ago. When I swallow water or air, I feel there is something scraping the back of my throat. It feels like hard and sharp. Anyone had that?
Or is it just the dryness and radiation burn of the throat making that sensation? Wound visiting an ENT who might put a camera down there and see what's down there?
I can swallow water but have not try anything else. Thinking of trying porridge but worry I might choke. Tried chewing gum to help promote saliva stimulation but the gum just breaks up into little pieces. It seems the saliva has different chemistry and break up everything into pieces causing me to choke.
I've gained 10 lbs in two weeks from feeding tube alone. Is that healthy or is it too fast? Body still feel weak as before but fatique improve a little.
I'm just throwing all these symptoms out there and hoping someone might give some insight so I don't feel like I'm in the dark.
Thank you for listening or reading.
