Hi Warrior girl, I'm so pleased you found the head and neck cancer group so helpful, we are only too pleased to chip in and help people who are dealing with this sort of cancer, with head and neck there are so many areas that can be affected so sometimes it's hard to answer or advice all the time but we try our best between us. Many thanks for the kind positive comments, I certainly have made some lovely friends on here. Wishing you all the best, take care.
