Hey everyone...was looking into different treatments and came across some documentation about Oxygen treatments such as a Hyperbolic Chamber.
Does anyone here have any experience with this?

I would like to know more regarding hyperbaric chamber treatments. Mainly does having these treatments assist in stopping the jaw from dying? I understand that osteonecrosis is forever. Will I eventually end up with half a face?

My dad's surgeon told him that the risk of osteoradionecrosis is not 0 after having hyperbaric oxygen treatments but it is quite a lot lower than if you didn't have HBO. We're looking into having treatments for dad so he can have his teeth worked on. Our appointment is in November.


Dad was diagnosed 2/28/18 w Stage 4, N0 Verrucous carcinoma (VC) an uncommon variant of SSC
Mandibulectomy and free-flap reconstruction 5/30/18
Diagnosis changed to SSC.
Began treatment of 30 rads and 5 Cisplatin Cycles on 7/18/18
Decided not to do any more Cisplatin after the first one.
Finished treatment on 8/31/18.
3.19 Abscess & Recurrence wide mouth resection
4.16.19 Scapular Flap Reconstruction surgery
9.6.19 Clear CT!
8.6.20 Clear CT!
