Hi Everyone, thought I'd let you know what I've been trying for what lately. I'm eight months out of chemo/rads, and 5 or 6 from neck dissection.
Have been trying acupuncture--5 treatments now--for severe tinnitus. No result to speak of yet, and will be givng it another treatment or two. Well known products tried with no effect: Quietus and Arches Tinniuts Formula. They have grown new ear hairs in mice in Europe, so if they can just find a way to get those mice in your ear, there may be hope there.
My new medical oncologist has a lymph edema misogynist on staff and will be starting treatments in a week or so for edema on the left side of neck from-mainly I believe--the neck surgery. She also notced the abnormality of my bones on the left upper back and collarbone. My left scalpula has moved up to the top of my shoulder from the dissection. She is going to refer me to a physical therapist. She said my ENT surgeon should have told me more about it, in effect. But my ENT is not one to bog you down with details.
Also, after trying to get calories and protein into my stomach for the last months, I'm working back toward getting vegetables and frut there also. I'm waiting on a Jack Lalanne Juicer. I mention the name only because I used to have a juicer, but everything had to be cut up to put in the chute, so you got to know a bag of carrots pretty well before you could drink them. With this model you can put in a medium sized apple, whole carrots, etc., and should encourage me to use it, because the juices are great. Also a late comer to green smoothies (thanks Sweet for the ideas). If you only have a bullet for a blender, you can Ebuy a blender attachment that will allow you to use it to make the fruit and vegetable smoothies.
