I had laryngeal cancer
last year and had chemo and radiation
. The throat
is a major gland area, lymph nodes, saliva glands, thyroid etc. The no saliva thing is the most common, the saliva glands get nuked. Does it come back? to some extent it might, I have about 50% and my onc doc says that may be it. use biotene toothpaste and gargle with biotene mouth wash 3 times a day. This really helps, but never be too far away from a bottle of water.
