I just want to introduce myself. I am an oral cancer survivor and am 33 years old. I have two small children and teacher special education. I am currently in remission, but am having horrible side effects from the radiation i received. I am approahing my one year anniversary of the second occurance of this stuff. Never thought I would be here to see that day come. Anyway look forward to communicating with other survivors and current patients.
Due to having had radiation to the headn adn neck area, I now have sever dry mouth as it fried my salivary lands. I also have rock hard neck muscles. My tongue is in constant pain due to the scar tissue. I also just bgean to have dental issues due to the lack of saliva in my mouth. I have also been told that there are late side-effects oa frads that I have yet to get and I I never do.
