Hello, I'm new here. I was diagnosed May last year with a rare mucous membrane cancer. Started in my sinus and spread to my left cheek. I had surgery and radiotherapy (6 weeks). I stopped eating around the end of week 4 as it was getting too painful. My radiotherapy finished in mid-August and I didn't begin eating again until September. I'm now doing OK (still not putting weight on) but a recent issue is food going into my nose when I eat and me having to gently blow it out (I have a hole in the roof of my mouth and the skin didn't grow over it) . I haven't got any feeling on the left side of my face so sometimes my husband tells me I need to wipe my nose. Oh Dear! Hope you are doing well Captain.
