had a neck dissection and 37 treatments of radiation to the head and neck.
Every now and then, I do get facial and neck cramps. I find that it I
extend my neck and lightly slap/tap the cramp, it goes away. I think it is
a small price to pay for being alive ;+) I am glad to hear that you
stopped smoking. I did as well for two years after my surgery. About
a year ago, I guess I wanted to forget that I ever had cancer and returned to
the old habits. I am determined to give them up and curse my stupidity for
starting again! God Bless and welcome to a great web site filled with very
caring and supportive cancer survivors!

smoking for the same time as well,what is getting on my nerves a little is

in parts of my neck.is this because of the treatment,radiotherepy that has
made my veins smaller so the blood do not run as fast?
