My husband and I have learned thru this experience how important it is to check in with your OWN Dr. Our internist has been awesome and offered options that the oncologists didn't. For instance - he discovered thrus in the throat and prescribed a great script. to help - really improved the awful taste that occurs with rad and chemo. Thrush is a very common side effect of the radiation treatment. He also noticed that my hubs. blood pressure was low and changed his medication for that.
