First, breathe. Then in the morning call your doctor or doctors, if need be, and ask to be seen. If for no other reason than to give you peace of mind. Give yourself a hug from all of us in the meantime.  Hugs!!

I'm now 5 months post and still have a tender spot on my jaw directly above my main target area.  It comes and goes, but I can massage it down and it stops being sensitive for a couple of days.   I think we did a CT on it (many post things have happened in 5 months), but in any case it was just an abused gland.   You have probably 6 more months of radiation related.  My tongue is still a bit swollen, my throat has only come back to full open in the last week.  But, yeah, get it checked.

Sounds pretty normal to me. Thats probably going to be the new normal for the next few months.

Good Luck, the days are clicking by.

It's OK.  Just keep an eye on it and mention it to you dr. I bet it's because the radiation is still "cooking" like everyone says. Hugs to you!

So I feel kinda dumb :)

I have possibly a kidney stone or infection, for which I have to see my Primary care.

The swollen Lymph Node is probably my Lymph node jumping up and down, saying "Infection, infection!" and fighting it off :)

So all's good in the world :)

SuzJ, you are not dumb! Not at all! Cancer diagnosis makes you and those that love you hyper vigilant.  And it's always better to err on the side of caution.  Take care of yourself.  Hugs!
