Please read and offer advice if you know of any similar situations or side effects.
Hi, my sister seems to have the worst case of side effects and trouble than anyone else I have read about on this board or any other from her treatments. She has a reoccurence, base of tongue tumor.She has a trach., to help her breathe and a feeding tube so she can eat. She has not eaten or spoken in months. She is having her 4th treatment of chemo starting today. The doctors say that she can't breathe through her mouth because of the massive swelling caused by the chemo in her throat . We will find out if the chemo has shrunk the tumor after this treatment. Has anyone had this bad of side effects or swelling in the throat. Has anyone had a tracheotomy in for 6-8 months and been able to speak again? Please send me some news or advice. Thank you
