Mouth/ toncil cancer

Hi 

Was diagnosed with stage3 toncil/mouth cancer on 25th april 19.

After all the scans n biopsy, treatment came with 270 hours of intense chemo and 30 sessions of radio.

Fitted with a feeding rig.

I must admit it was brutal.

The after effects/side effects are horrendous not being able to eat, swallow is difficult n thick gluey mucous 

And damaged saliva glands/constant dry mouth

Anyone on here  had similar.  be good to chat to like minded people.
