My mom is going into her second week of radiation to the throat for throat cancer. Please can anyone tell me what to expect? When will she most likely begin to have a sore throat and how awful will this get? She is having a feeding tube placed tommorow morning. Has anyone had this procedure and how sore can she expect to be afterwards? This is precautionary at this point as she has not had pain in the throat yet and is still eating. She finished 5 rounds of chemo and radiation to the lung area for lung cancer in September. We almost lost her due to bleeding in the lungs at the tumor site. they say she responded very well to the lung treatments and so now we are treating the throat cancer. please if anyone can help me to see what she can expect to face it would be greatly appreciated.
