First post ever!

I have been diagnosed with Stage 4 Squamish HPV Throat Cancer and didn't have a clue as to what I was getting myself into. Now I have 7 Radiation treatments left and my last Chemo treatment starts tomorrow. What I want to know is, is anyone having the same symptoms as me and what happens after? My side effects are a constant stream of phlegm, so much I had to start taking a "spit cup" with me! I think this is disgusting, first of all, second, at night, while hooked up to my feeding pump for 12 hours, I constantly wake up in the middle of the night and spit out brown or sometimes bloody amounts of phlegm that would fill the cup after ten spits! What the hell is going on? Then I heard that the recovery is even worse, in regards to pain and phlegm. Has anyone else had to deal with these issues before? Please help, thanks
