    Oh No (Diagnosed): My Husband was diagnosed with Base of the tongue cancer about a month ago. He starts Radiation next week October 24th. I'm very nervous about the severity and duration of the pain.

      Julie- Make sure the doctors address his pain issue as a #1 priority. There are many options and they can find the right one, but you really have to push it with them. Some doctors are so focused on the disease that they forget to look at quality of life. As a caregiver and spouse, one of our most important roles is advocating for the best possible care. Several times, I've had to tell the doctor that my husband's pain has increased, that they need to address this issue. Stay strong so your husband can focus on feeling better!!
