I had a total TT last October for Papillary CA and then RAI in February. My jaws hurt a bit after the RAI and I was completely exhausted for months. Then in June my mouth just dried up and my paratoid glands got really swollen. The swelling and pain in mostly down now - although after I eat the glands swell up again. What really bothers me is that my mouth is so dry, I am constantly drinking water and sucking on those horrible lemon candies. Eating and even walking/running is so difficult because of the dryness.
My endo told me that this can happen but there is nothing I can do about it. Has this happened to anyone else??? Does it go away???
Any advice, this is driving me nuts!!
