Hello everyone. I'm not on this particular board often, because my primary diagnosis is lung cancer, but it has now metastasized to my bones and throat. It has created a tumor which has completely obstructed my esophagus so I am no longer able to swallow anything (not even my saliva). Because of this, my mouth gets extremely dry. I was wondering if anyone here has experienced anything like this or has any tips for keeping my mouth hydrated. I already suck on ice chips and hard candies but am looking for other ideas or perhaps products you have tried that really work!
