Dear Lucie,

I have had a lot of support from the board and of course the moderators such as yourself. I have recently had my check up and this included the PET CT SCAN. The check up was all clear which is very positive. I still have a long way to go, but have started to eat better and can taste food now. My dry mouth is still there and I drink a lot of water and have a dry mouth spray always in my pocket.

The front part of my neck under my chin is still enlarged and it is quite hard. Is this normal. Is it fibre damage and will it go away in time. Also I have a sucking problem and feel very nervous at times. Is this anything to do with the radiotherapy.

Im just asking as Im sure as always the answers are here on the board. 

Please understand everyone Im a very grateful person and I thank the nurses and doctors very much for all there help. My issues are minor and I would appreciate any advice.
