My friend is undergoing radiation for throat cancer.She was wondering if anyone found the amifostine successful. It makes her dreadfully sick. However that did not start until after her chemo treatment. She has a rash on her neck and ran a fever the other night. Her regular radiologist is on vacation and the on-call Dr. decided to discontinue the amifostine for 4 days until he returns. She is wondering if this will be a set back but her main concern is if it really works. I would appreciate any insight to pass on to her and hope to get her on her computer and into the chat soon! Thanks!
