Hello,

It has been15 months since my last radiation treatment. As I posted before, I had tongue cancer went through all the weeks of chemo and 49 hits of radiation. I am thankful that my cancer is gone, but the radiation has trashed my voice. I did try voice therapy, it doesn’t help and wanted to reach out to the forum to see if anyone has ideas to help treat the scar pain, and help my voice from sounding like I am 90 years old. I know that the thick saliva doesn’t help my voice too

Thanks,

Bruce

Hi Bruce,

I don't know how to help with the scar pain, but I'm finding to relieve the thick saliva production is to gargle warm salty water really helps to clear it. I do it whenever I go to the bathroom (Or sometimes kitchen if I'm feeling lazy).

If my throat is feeling sensitive, the I just rinse my mouth out with the warm water. The niggest help is to keep everything as clean as possible.
