I woke up yesterday afternoon and discovered that I've lost my voice. I cannot talk at all; only whisper. I'm told this is an expected side effect of the radiation therapy.
The skin on my neck and throat is burned and the nausea continues. I can't eat anything without becoming nauseous, and the medication for nausea is not all that helpful. The only real cure is time. I'm supposed to consume 2000 calories per day; I'm doing good to eat 1100. Yesterday I managed about 1800 or so, which took a Herculean effort on my part.
