i am 32 year old who has been diagnosed with Squamous cell carcinoma of tongue and underwent surgery almost two months back and am recovering. i was asked to go for radiation for 27 sessions. all went well till 14 sessions and after that due to problems in swallowing i stopped taking food and was on liquid diet. now i have developed oral thrush and am under treatment. my main problem is over secretion of saliva. my therapist says that it will control once radiation is stopped. can anyone please suggest me some remedies or tips to control over secretion of saliva.
thanks and regards
