My mom was recently diagnosed with T1 N4 base of toungue cancer. She's 2 1/2 weeks into a 5 week course of IMRT radiation and 1 day/week chemo. Her throat is swollen almost shut and the pain killers arent helping. She wants to stop treatment because of the pain its causing her. Anyone have suggestions how to help her better deal? Anyone have similar experiences?
Thank you in advance!
