My husband suffers from thick, stringy mucous. He received 38 treatments of radiation, 3 years ago, for tumor under his tongue. He has a feeding tube because he is enabled to swallow. He uses a suction machine all day and throughout the night to help get a short time of relief, but it begins again. He has used many combinations of mouth rinses..... Baking Soda, Salt, Club Soda, Diet Lemon/Lime soda, etc. to no avail. Cannot take anti-histamines because of Congestive Heart Failure. Does anyone else suffer from a wet mouth? He just doesn't have any quality of life. But he is a fighter and would go to the moon for help if he had to.
