Hi, I have just been diagnosed with a very large tumour, HPV+ at the back of my sinus.  I start 7 weeks of radiation and chemo on Monday.  I have been in a lot of pain and have been trying a lot of drugs for nerve pain as well as for general pain including headaches such as palexia and panadeine forte.  All of this helps a bit, but ultimately the pain will only reduce following treatment.  Can anyone tell me how long that may take?  I do understnd I am in for a world of new pain with the treatment too.......
