Swollen Larynx

My hubby is 7 weeks post treatment - epiglottis with 2 lymphs - his voice is getting hoarse, & it feels like the larynx is now swollen.  Food is also getting stuck in his throat, which hasn't happened since before treatment began.  Hoping this is effects from rads.  He has an ENT appt tomorrow, so we'll find out for sure.  His last ENT appt sounded very positive, the doc said the epiglottis was very smooth and good looking.

I saw some others had swelling in the cheecks; wondering if anyone has had swelling in the larynx area after treatment.

Thanks

Thank you, Candi.  Doc said the swelling and hoarsness was from rads, along with some edema.  The tumor site looked good, but there is one lymph that is pea sized.  He said that hopefully, it is just inflamation, but we have to wait for the PET on Feb 17 to know for sure.
