    A cancer survivor, Michael Tartaro is happy he’s around to talk about it. “I had base of the tongue, head, and neck cancer. Stage four with tumors.” He immediately underwent intense treatment. “Radiation and heavy chemo for three months - they’d rather hit it quickly and hard,” says Tartaro. In years past, eradicating his cancer could have left Tartaro speechless. “If you go back 10 years ago, patients were getting more radical neck dissections. There was more accessory nerve damage. Radiation wasn’t quite as pin-pointed. Chemo drugs were a little bit different. So we had a full gamut of different side effects,” says Stacey Brill a speech therapist with Lee Memorial Health System. She provides therapy for oral cancer patients. Even with fewer surgeries performed today, life-saving treatments are almost always life-changing. “Eighty-five percent of this population does have a swallowing deficit to a varying degree.” Getting a head start on therapy can minimize aftereffects. Helping patients swallow and eat, returning them to their pre-cancer selves as quickly as possible. “A lot of them do have aspiration risks. If we can go ahead and start their therapy at that point in time, and start working with the muscles, we get better and faster outcomes.” To counteract scarring and tissue damage, Tartaro undergoes electrical stimulation. It reduces his risk of choking and makes it easier to eat by retraining his swallowing muscles. “Curing the cancer is amazingly good. But if you don’t have the therapy to follow up, I mean if I couldn’t eat anymore, you start to get the quality of life issues, serious quality of life issues,” says Tartaro. With specialized care, head and neck cancer patients can face the future in the fullest sense.
