Thu, Jun 25 11:10pm · Laryngeal cancer (recurrence) in Head & Neck Cancer

Hi Mark, I was going to suggest juicing. It works great. I did it in the machine that makes the juice totally liquid. I had my little recipe that I will share. It has been seven years and I stoped juicing about two years ago, when my machine went kaput and I kind of forgot about it. Everything I put in there was organic, so it is a little expensive, but I am worth it. One apple, one lemon, three stacks celery, seven kale leafs, half a cucumber, a piece of curcuma root and a piece of ginger. I think it will help with the mucus too. I never saved it in the fridge. Right from the juicer, and like medicine, down my throat. I also suggest avocado. It is soft and very rich in many good things. Cuddled eggs also. I used to have a very large syringe with a tube and I would put the food in the back of my throat so I could pass it easer. I am remembering things I had forgotten. It was a tough time, but here I am, happy as a clam. My best to you, Loli

Hi everyone, This is Loli. I have not participated in a long time. I share so many things with Maureen, it is not funny! I have just started biting my flap too! I have lost a bunch of molars to receding gums after radiation therapy, four to be exact. Dry mouth, only when I wake up. During the day it improves. Somehow, I have stoped juicing and I think I should go back to it. It is the one thing that helped me the most. Seven years for me! My scars are a daily remainder that I am human, and that I am alive and blessed with a bunch of grandkids that love me. My best to all!

Hi Raj,
I had exactly the same cancer in the cheek seven years ago. My surgery was on March 27 and I did not start radiation until May 20th through July 3rd. Your sisters skin has to heal because radiation will burn her skin. So be patient. I do not have time right now to write more about my case; but I just want to let you know, that you have to trust her doctors about radiation treatment. If they took her cheek out, even her outer skin, it means that they were careful to make sure the cancer was removed. In my case, my cancer was at the beginning stage, so my doctor did not remove my outer skin. I was lucky. Loli

Dec 6, 2019 · Tongue Cancer: Concern that no radiation offered after surgery in Head & Neck Cancer

Canziea, I am terribly sorry your mother has to go through this ordeal. The first thing I would do, is to go back to the doctor for a check-up, and please go with her. Take paper and pencil, and write everything he has to say. Also, go prepared with all your written questions. This might be a relapse, and you need to know. If, it is not, let us rejoice and we will give you all the advise we have through our experiences; but time if of the essence to see her doctor again Loli

Colleen, Thank you for bringing us together again. I am happy to hear from Maureen. We share so much! My problems are with my gums receding due to radiation, so from time to time, I loose a molar. Well, one less molar to brush. Somehow, I have been producing more saliva and my mouth is not so dry. I have done nothing different, so I do not have any new recommendation. Same as Maureen, I have started a group through my church, to drive people to their appointments. It makes me happy to be able to help others. My sister just came back from Mayo in Scottsdale. She had a positive checkup and flew back to Mexico last week. My sister in law, decided to go through her third Chemo treatment. It is very difficult for the family because, even though they are aware that she is terminal, some days they are optimistic, and then, there are the bad days. Should she just let be confortable, or should she fight? Very though, and all I can do, is pray for wisdom. Thank you for listening, and Happy Thanksgiving; I am thankful for this chat.
