Well I have four more weeks to go. The outside looks good so far not too red. The inside that's a different story mucositis, sores on tongue and back of mouth. The pain is the worst when the mouth drys out. That is the torcher part the dry mouth hurts like hell! THIS IS LIVING HELL! I'm getting PEG tube in on Wed. I'm soooo stupid I should have known better; but I was trying to keep things as normal as possible. I don't even want to eat; so far I lost 10 lbs. At least I decided to get peg now before things really got worse! I don't care what anyone says this is the worst kind of cancer to get!!!!!
What sucks too is using oxcodone for pain relief which drys the mouth out too. I didn't want to use vicodin since it has acetaminophen in it and cisplatin is already tough on the liver!! I hope this torcher is worth it!!! :( Well, happy memorial day everyone! GOD BLESS!
