Hello, it is now 9 weeks since my treatment for throat cancer finished (3 chemo plus 35 radiation). I have recovered very well in all aspects except for ongoing mouth pain. In particular my tongue and back of throat are still very sore and irritated.
I eat all meals (PEG removed 3 weeks ago) but my diet has to remain very bland as I cannot manage anything that is even slightly spicy or acidic. It is becoming harder to maintain my body weight.
I thought that my mouth and throat would be fully healed by now but that is not the case. It would be super helpful if others who had similar treatment can advise me of their experiences re healing of their mouth and throat.
Thanks in advance,
