    Radiation Required?

    • GregP_WN's Avatar

      I had a similar treatment. I had SCC but my primary was found, right tonsil. I had the radical neck disection on right side followed by radiation treatments. That was 4.5 years ago. Doing pretty good these days except for the stiff neck from the surgery and radiation on the scar, and dry mouth, dental problems from the radiation.
      But I'll take it compared to the alternative.

      And now they are even better with Radiation..more pin point with less harm to healthy tissue. Its painless but it does have side effects so make sure you discuss them and are prepared to help reduce them if she has some effects.
