Hello! My husband was diagnosed with Stage 3 OPC, mostly base of tongue. He starts radiation & chemo this week. No surgery as there was too much muscle involvement. Our daughter found this site which looks like it will be a great resource. We feel like we are in good hands at UCSF and they have counseled us on everything from speech to hearing to dental to nutrition to support therapy. They have given him swallowing and jaw exercises to start now. He had a chest port put in to make the infusions easier and surgery to move a salivary gland further away from possible radiation involvement. We are preparing to stock up on high calorie, high protein, easy swallowing meals and I will read threads to see what other people found worked best throughout the treatment. They gave me a couple of recommendations of protein powders but will read some info on this site as well. He/we are ready to finally start treatment and look beyond. Thanks everyone!
