Hi Marian: Thanks for your reply. I ordered the book and will read it and try some of the suggestions. It can’t hurt. The local doctors sure haven’t done much, if anything, to help me. I know the radiation I had (4 years ago) affected me, but some of the new things I am experiencing have nothing to do with after radiation effects – I convinced a doctor at the University of Alabama in Birmingham to look for blockages in my parotid glands and he reluctantly did surgery and found they were blocked (had kinks in the salivary glands) which made my mouth sore, but unfortunately wasn’t the cause of the foul taste and dripping uvula mucus. I need to find somewhere to go (Mayo?) who will spend more time looking at my symptoms instead of my past (cancer treatment issues), and check into things like acid reflux, where the drainage dripping into my throat is originating (like a post nasal drip with a foul burning taste) is coming from. I will try the lemonade and other suggestions when I get my book. Thanks. I hope you are doing better. What are you doing for your problem(s)? It’s a shame you can’t live in a place where you could be happy and not so depressed. I know how you feel about losing your daughter. I lost my son when he was 29. He went to Cancun, Mexico on a vacation and drowned. It just about killed me. He went with a girlfriend who I didn’t like (she was 10-years older than he), and they had asked me to go, but I was working and almost went, but didn’t. I always thought afterwards that if I had been there, he wouldn’t have drowned. Anyway, he’s in Gods loving hands now, so that makes me smile. Take care and talk with you again.

Sep 21, 2011 · Tonsil cancer in Head & Neck Cancer

I had tonsil cancer in November 2007; tonsils removed and 7 weeks of radiation, with one day/week chemo. I have a sweet putrid mucus that stays in my mouth all the time and most doctors think it is an after effect to radiation. However, it has been almost 4 years since my treatments. Following treatments, I had the normal metallic taste, heavy mucus, sore tongue, trouble swallowing, etc. Then things started getting better. But, not for long. About 1 1/2 years ago I started having this sickening taste, with frothy mucus, sometimes pasty in my mouth 24/7. I cannot find a doctor or hospital who will explore other causes than radiation. I suspect bacteria infection (possibly pseudonomas which has sweet taste), but have been unable to find a hospital or doctor who will check this out.
