Good evening everybody,My name is Pauline and I had Neck&Throat Cancer - 4+1.

 I would like to discuss some issues that I am having.  Ironically  for myself it wasn't the reality of cancer.

 

I realised my journey after treatment was  my recovery time and the damage that was done to my swallowing, my saliva  etc - Having said that I now have after 18months my feeding out of my stomach.

My biggest problem was dealing with people who treated me with little regard that I was still in recovery mode.

Hi Pauline_50,

 

I'm sorry to hear about your cancer and the difficulties that you are having.

What are the problems you are having with people who are treating?

I mean, I get that people can be quite insensitive, so I'm not doubting you at all.  I just meant specific issues.
