    External radiation

    Radiation

    I have 12 more left as of today. If I can make it, I will have received 35 treatments. o far, lost from 178 to 158. Hurts bad, can't swallow, chew, all the things associated with the mouth have been affected.I guess this is a "poor me", but the most help I have had besides the support of my loving wife, has come from reading the comments on this site. Thank God i found this.
