I wrote once before in regards to my Dad having been diagnosed with rectal cancer a few weeks ago. He is starting his 3rd week of radiation and chemo tomorrow in preparation for his surgery. Just the other day he started getting horrible mouth sores as well as an intense burning whenever he has a bowel movement. Is there anything he can do to help overcome these side effects? Ointments, Creams, medicines...etc. Any advice or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
