Throat Cancer Recovery

My husband has recently finished radiation and chemotherapy for throat cancer,but we have no idea how long it will be before he may be able to eat again.Doctors tell you almost nothing.HE has a feeding tube,but is starting to feel hungry again,and getting very frustrated because he can't swallow yet. If anyone has any idea it would be appreciated.

Re: Throat Cancer Recovery

Hello Lynn,

The healing process is different in each individual.

A follow up appointment with the physician may be the best indicator of his progress.

Take care.
