      How many treatments have you had? I had 25 during my last diagnosis, 30 years ago I had 28 to my chest/neck/throat, during both of them I had the raw throat, couldn't eat, it hurt so bad eating or drinking. Miracle mouthwash helps. Chloraseptic spray helped me a little too. What issues are you having?

      I had 35 radiation and 6 Cistplatin infusions, the last being June this year. Still have sore throat and swelling in throat, neck, mouth, and face. I can eat and drink, but have to be careful not to swallow too fast. The lymphedema is uncomfortable, unsettling, and depressing. Hanging in to stay vigilante with treating and hoping for the best. You were treated 30 years ago, then it came back recently?
