donfoo,
As you already know, dental extractions post-radiation therapy are a risk due to the possibility of developing ORN (osteoradionecrosis) resulting from compromised blood flow to the jaw. My past posts on this topic, document the bad advice that was offered by various dental specialists in our local area. My husband did not get good advice until he consulted a dental surgeon who was part of an oral cancer team at a large NYC hospital.

The OCF pages under dental issues are helpful.
All the best,
travelottie

Congrats, Bill. I'm not far behind you - 15 years out and hanging in. May it continue!

Congrats, Kevin. I also don't visit here much anymore since I'm just recently 15 years out. And like you I have prostate cancer, but mine is still thankfully Gleason 3+3, so no treatment yet.

And yeah - where are Christine and Brian?

Repeat tooth extraction after HBO Dianed 07-10-2024 06:57 PM
Hi I’m wondering if anyone has gone through previous HBO treatment and tooth extraction and needs another tooth extraction a few years later. Do you need to have another round of HBO treatments before having the tooth extraction? Thank you for any information.

Immunotherapy tlc356 06-22-2024 06:51 PM
If you have had Immunotherapy for OC, I'd like to hear about your experience. I was started on Keytruda and Cetuxamab in March 2024. It appears to be helping and the side effects are tolerable. Either post a reply or email me (in profile).
