I am currently going through radiation for tongue cancer (only 11 treatments left!) and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on how to stave off mouth ulcers or how to control them.
About two weeks ago, at the end of my third week of radiation, I had an outbreak of sores. They covered 2/3 of my tongue, my lips and inside my cheeks, as well as my gums and underneath my tongue. Basically all over the lower part of my mouth. It got to a point where I couldn't talk, eat, drink or really swallow at all. It was so bad that they decided to stop my treatment for a week.
My mouth is healed right now and I just had a week of treatment, but I'm afraid that the ulcers will come back full force. Any ideas on how to stave them off? Or if they do come back, how to control them, so the don't take over my mouth?
