Re: Neck and Throat Cancer

The treatment is rough i wont lie but there are things u can do.My ex husband had stage4 throat cancer, he was small to begin with so he did have the peg tube inserted.His throat will get very sore&his mouth will get dry making it hard to eat so the tube will help.He needs to bulk up before he starts tx tho.The procedure to have the peg put in isnt painful @ all. its a simple procedure.Radiation is very hard on the saliva glands so try to protect them if possible.Any other questions please ask!!!good luck &God bless! ps.my ex is doing great!
