after treatment for neck and throat cancer what side effects will I have

my husband who is 71 had stage 4 neck and throat cancer, primary tumor was in back of his tongue. At this time he is cancer free after 33 radiation treatments and 8 chemo treatments. It has been 3 months since his last treatment. At this point he has absolutely no energy, even though he is taking vitimins. I still feed him thru a G tube, he says that he has a very hard time swallowing, feels like something is in his throat, plus he has a lot of mucas that he has a hard time getting up. He is very miserable. Even though the doctors state he is cancer free. Are these normal side effects?
