    enduring radiation therapy

    Had head/neck surgery for squamous cell cancer in neck lymph nodes. Now 15 days into radiation therapy. Really awful, not sure I can make the full 30 days.
    Nausea, sores in mouth and throat. I've endured radiation for breast cancer and 2 chemo plus Car-t for lymphoma but this is really rough. Any advice greatly appreciated!

      Hi, judithj. I’m so sorry. I’ve had no experience with head and neck radiation, but I wanted to wish you good luck. I know it’s a very hard radiation. You might want to try https://www.headandneck.org/support-community/.
      I hope you can complete your radiation. Wishing you all the best.
