My husband was diagnosed with oropharyngeal cancer in August. He underwent a neck dissection in September and finished 35 radiation treatments and 7 chemo treatments one month ago today. He had a PEG tube put in and is still using it. He hasn't had any food, and VERY LITTLE fluids, by mouth in about 9 weeks. His throat is still extremely sore. It has been a terrible ordeal for him. And, naturally, it's been very stressful on me as well. I'd like to know if there are any support groups out there for the caregivers of cancer patients. Sometimes, I just feel like I need someone to talk to who can relate to my situation. Thanks.
