I'm sorry to hear how you're feeling at the moment. I haven't had chemotherapy so don't have any advice for you unfortunately.

However, I'm sure if you post this message in the head and neck cancer group you'll find others over there who will understand what you're going through and can share their experiences with you.

I hope you feel better soon
