I've seen people post on here about how they have to drink water due to little or no saliva due to rads. I am in the same boat but I have only met one other person who has really been through what I have especially at my age. That part is kind of hard but it lead to me to a wonderful woman a befriended and have helped her with the things that I have already gone through. I had cancer in my upper palette, it came back just after the two year mark and a third time in my right lymph node. I have no saliva left, just thick mucus. What I struggle with is wanting to do things but aren't able to because I have to drink ALL the time. Does anyone else struggle with this? I also lost all of my upper mouth although it has been rebuilt I have no teeth so I haven't eaten in about 5 years.
