The hydration helps more some days than others. I had a bad day Saturday and was in bed all day. Sunday and today is starting out better. Two more days of radiation to go then I should start the recovery phase-a couple of weeks of that, I am told, then I should start to get back to normal.

Thanks, Wayno. Last night I suffered an unfortunate relapse and felt like I was ready to give up! Couldn't breathe right, felt terrible all night. I stayed in bed for nearly 20 hours! Feeling okay this morning, but still have no appetite and am losing lots of weight. Glad I have only two treatments left and will be receiving hydration infusions for at least another week.

Thank you. I would appreciate your instructions regarding use storage of aloe. We grow aloe plants and this could prove valuable to us.

Thank you for your insight and advice. I will keep the idea about aloe in mind as we do have aloe plants we tend for summer sun bburns.

I have HPV throat cancer consisting of a tumor near my left tonsil plus some small lesions in my lymph nodes on the right side. I am at radiation treatment 18 today and just seeing radiation burns beginning on both sides of my throat. I am treating the burn with aquaphor.

An ear and throat oncologist surgeon at Oregon Health Sciences University is where this all began. He had a tissue sample from my throat biopsied to determine if my "suspicious appearing" lump in my throat was cancer and everything thereafter is a result.
