Swallowing liquids after throat surgery and lymph node dissection
I had a second surgery three weeks ago to remove residual tonsil cancer and to remove two lymph nodes. I am struggling to swallow liquids. They often (if I look down) drain out of my nose. I can swallow soft foods much better. Also some issues with speech. I sound like I have a clothes pin on my nose. Does this lessen in degree with more healing?
Also have had a pre NavDx test ( my cancer is HPV16) and am having a post test on Aug 14. Anyone have experience with the NavDx? Or data that supports its accuracy?
