The most difficult part of my stage 4 throat cancer treatment was when I had reached the point in my radiation treatments when it was no longer possible for me to swallow food. I could not have any milk products such as milkshakes because the radiation caused me to develop thrush.I was forced to revert to hydration treatments everyday for a month. I ended up loosing 70 pounds.
For me the most difficult part of my treatment was the constant transitioning from being home for 10 days and then back to the hospital for 4 days receiving my treatment. Just when I was getting comfortable at home I was packing to go back to the hospital. This was my routine for 6 months. But I did make good friends with other patients and staff members . In a funny way when I completed my last treatment i felt a little sad leaving all the people that had such a positive impact on my life.
