Week 1 Proton Therapy, unilateral for tonsil and Lymph node. HPV

Had my first session yesterday. Uneventful of course. I could see how others might have a tough time but it was a walk in the park for me.
I walked 5 miles and worked out in the gym before treatment so was feeling well. Today will split my exercise to make sure I get in a couple of miles of running after treatment every time.

Started fluoride treatment this morning along with mouth wash and gargle. Gargling several times a day is going to be a nuisance. But will comply.
SLP appt this morning and they said since it is unilateral they do not expect swallowing problems and but went through the information for me. Said no swallowing exercises needed. Hope that is the case. I had already been doing them. Along with neck and mouth exercises.

Nothing to see here..yet. just change in routine to incorporate all the stuff.


Tonsil and lymph node, early detection. SCC HPV, Treatment: Started 02272019 Proton Unilateral Therapy. 30 sessions
Also Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia Survivor. Treatment Calquence...No symptoms or side effects.

It’s great to see you have such a positive attitude. The gargling is a pain but when the mouth sores and gunk become too much, you can consider using a Waterpik on the lowest setting. Use the tongue scraper and put a spoonful of magic mouthwash into the warm water. It works really well at that point when you feel you just don’t want to bother with gargling anymore.
