I completed my radio and chemo treatment in October but still suffering throat pain and swallowing difficulties. I have had a general report of successful treatment in January.

Hi  and welcome to the Online Community but so sorry to see you finding us.

This is such a hard time for you and the rest of the family but talking with people on the same path can help a lot. 

My cancer journey was rather different but if you follow this LINK to our Head and Neck Cancer Forum you will be able to connect with people who may understand the path you are on.

Just join the group and hit the 'Start a Discussion' tab and introduce yourself to the group. Remember to go to the right on the home page and indicate how you want to receive email notifications when someone answers your posts.

You may also find our various Macmillan Support Line Services on 0808 808 00 00 helpful as you can talk to a friendly person that can help in various ways.

It would be really useful if you could put something into your profile as this does help others when replying to you or for those looking for support and information as they can read a bit about your journey so far.

Just click on your username and then select 'Edit Profile' under the 'Profile Settings'. If you're not sure what sort of thing to put just click on my username, Thehighlander to read my profile but my cancer journey was rather long.

All the best.
