HPV Throat Cancer

Hi @fxdwing, I’m so sorry to hear about your current health concerns. I was treated for stage IV HPV oropharyngeal cancer in 2015. The tumor was on the right side base of tongue and had spread to the lymph nodes on both sides. I too underwent 35 radiation treatments and 3 rounds of chemo (cisplatin). My last treatment was in June 2015. I am living with the long term effects of the radiation- jaw bone necrosis, dry mouth, some difficulty swallowing, and my voice has not quite returned to normal. I’m keeping you in my thoughts and prayers and hoping for the best possible outcome for you.

It's a very difficult cancer @fxdwing and @catlyn. I'm sending you both good wishes all the way from New Zealand.
