Wow it’s finally so nice to hear from people who have the same issues. I’m almost in tears. I had nasopharyngeal cancer 2013. In 2021 I was diagnosed with Osteoradioncrosis. I have severe dysphasia, aspiration pneumonia few times and getting ready for the 3rd surgery . My bones are basically ruined. I have fractures and a nasty fracture in my neck. I do swallow therapy and nothings changed but don’t want throat to close. I don’t want a feeding tube again. Living on ensure and soups. I don’t go out with friends or family to restaurants anymore. I eat alone. I also have trouble with my speech. To the guy in hospice. Thank you for sharing. Hang in there. ❤️✌️

Hi suzannekay753, You are not alone. Thanks for your kind reply. Sorry if I was
Blunt but there is no sugar coting our situation. My body was going to hell also
Then three years ago, when I needed help to get out of bed and get dressed. I
HAD ENOUGH ! I also needed help getting out of a sitting position. I cured all
that by getting to a gym for three days a week. My priorities are still the same:
Legs and Triceps. Now, it's easy even with Chemo Induced Neuropathy.
GET YOUR BUT TO A GYM. It will fix your issues. Be strong Never give up.
Once You See Results, You're Hooked. You Will Not Stop
