Hi all...haven't been on for a bit since I went under my treatment and came home but now need some answer please. I had 20 Avian radiation treatments on my tumor and finished June 23rd. Go back on Aug.2nd to see what further treatment. Had a PEG tube placed and a Power Port. But here is my problem....I can't get my body temp to regulate. I am either freezing or sweating with no happy medium. Guys. I am in so. Missouri and it is hot and humid and I either have goosebumps and am wrapped tight or am sweating then get cold from the sweats. Has anyone else had this and how to you fix it? My other question is I seem to have no or very little saliva and this makes it difficult to eat but don't want to use my PEG if I don't have to. What is the best thing to help that and if I don't use my PEG how often do I need to flush it? Thanks for all help.
