I finished radiation 6 weeks ago(offically 4 wks.) because my doctor told me that the radiation is still peaking for 2 wks. after the last treatment. I had 39 treatments. I'm hooked up with a feeding tube and I've been doing the best i can to start eating...I can handle small amounts and thats about it. My question is can anyone give me some input on how long this constriction or ball in my throat will last? Wednesday I found out I had Trush again. I'm on medication for the next two wks. I'm assuming this is hampering my ability to swallow. I'm just wondering how long it will take and is it normal for it to be uncomfortable at this stage. Thank you in advance.
