Pat is about two and a half months out of treatment. Eating seems to be going only ok. He says that most of his taste is back, and he doesn't have trouble swallowing, he just really doesn't seem to have much of an appetite. He is still losing weight. He did have some extra weight to lose, but his oncologist seems to be starting to show some concern with his continued weight loss. Other questions...energy level still really low. He's a trooper for sure, and tries to work as much as possible, but even a few hours wears him out to the point that he comes home and naps for a couple of hours. Lastly, before Pat was diagnosed with tonsil cancer he was a very loud snorer. After he had the tonsilectomy, and all through the rads the snoring had completely stopped. All of a sudden the snoring is back. Has anyone ever heard of snoring having any type of relationship to throat cancer? I know that I am probably just being paranoid, but I can't help but worry...never, ever, ever want to watch him go through this again...any input would be appreciated!
