Have had 33 radiation treatments. Now have severe pain and bleeding in my throat and roof of my mouth. Almost unable to swallow. Existing on Boost and water right now. Any suggestions?

Ouch, sorry to hear about your reactions to the rads. Everyones experience is so different. Mine were very painful blisters that would appear/disappear in the blink of an eye. My Dr. prescribed a numbing mouthwash to use before eating so you might want to ask about that. Other than that all I can offer is my sympathies.
