Brickster,

Good luck on your scans...my hubby T had same type of c as you...treatment was similar too. He coughed alot after treatment and has since stopped. I thought it might be from the healing of all those radiated tissues as I am sure that the dry mouth didn't help much either. Good luck to you and speedy healing!

Brickster, I see we have a few things in common!

If your cough happens when eating or swallowing it is possibly related to radiation. I had severe problems with inhaling food or water for 3 or more years after treatments. Happily these problems have mostly resolved.


Mark, 20 Year survivor, SCC right tonsil, 3 nodes positive, one with extra-capsular spread. I never asked what stage (would have scared me anyway) Right side tonsillectomy, radical neck dissection right side, maximum radiation to both sides, no chemo, no PEG, age 40 when diagnosed.
