Hi-Haven’t been on this blog for awhile but your comments on your brother’s condition popped up on my Email. I’m on oral cancer #3 and declined further radiation 1/2014 at Mayo because more damage wasn’t what I needed. Finally lost my swallow completely after many lung infections/pneumonia from ingested food. and now feed by G-tube. I must have missed something but how did your brother have a “spot on his lung”, and the radiation treatment for it “burned his throat”? I know radiation has a field of effect, but that’s quite a stretch. The only thing I can offer is that i have been tube fed for 18 months now, and the only problem is I keep GAINING weight. If your brother has access to a good nutritionist, perhaps they could find a liquid supplement that he could keep down. When I declined further radiation, they gave me 3-5 months and I’m still here, so you and your Bro hang in there.
