Reply to "Osteoradionacrosis"

Suefew, I have met a man who has had a couple of operations to take away necrotic bone at the top of his jaw to the healthy bone. Since then he had 15 consecutive days HBOT and then he has been having oxygen therapy once a week now for about 18 months and his consultant is now a great believer in it as he says that the bone is much healthier and has not deteriorated further. I think taking away necrotic bone is fairly standard, but given that there may be some trauma to the healthy bone as the necrotic is taken away, then oxygen helps prevent any further necrosis. We need someone with more knowledge to answer your question about whether if you leave it will it get worse, I can only say that my GP told me that necrosis can spontaneously stop. But we seem to be told such different things....
Is there any way you can get any oxygen treatment?
