Have heard it helps with the nausea? Is it supposed to be instant relief or does it take several days of ingestion to feel the effects? Have given David about 1/2 cup yesterday and another 1/2 cup tonight through his peg and he said he feels no better! His peg is only nourishment he is getting at this point. We talked with Rad Dr today and he said David has 6 more full rads and 11 more with the tumor and nodes spotted only, with less damage, "I quess to the throat after the next 6 treatments". He told us he is doing great as his throat looks good with no sores in the mouth or thrush, can still take liquids with no pain to speek of. His skin on his neck is amazingly in great shape with only a pink tint from the rads. Dr was very positive for him having had 22 treatment thus far!!
Dr also told us he feels Dave has 70 to 80% recovery for 2 years if this treatment has removed the cancer in his throat and the 2 lymph nodes.
