      Sorry for your dx. I'm a 20yr survivor of stage III tonsil cancer. Altho it does get better slowly, I still have lingering symptoms such as dry mouth, dental issues, neck stiffness. HOWEVER, the big plus that you have to focus on is : I'M STILL HERE!!! 19yrs ago, I founded and still facilitate an OHNC support group, and I find it very rewarding to help other people going thru the daunting H&N treatments. Good luck.

    Radiation (External radiation ): after 17 0f 33 treatments i needed a feeding tube, mouth was full of sores, couldn't swallow even liquids. This caused a one week break in treatment, not a good thing, the tube was removed one month after the end of treatment. i hd moderate o severe lymphedema for two to three months and have increasing problems related to radiation fibrosis.
