Hello all, hope you are having a nice weekend.
I am 8 days into Radiation, and 6 days post first Cisplatin. Nausea is controlled and no fevers. Seems like every other day is a good or a best day.
Food already is tasting bland and the texture of food I can tolerate seems to change by the day. My Oral regiment is to breush and floss after each time I eat something or drink something sweet or carbonated. I use the Biotene tooth paste and mouth spray as well as gargle with the two part Caphasol Product 3-6 times daily.
The moucous is not so bad yet thay it impedes swallowing nor does it bother me yet while laying flat for radiation but it is definitely there and seems to be at the forefront of my daily activities.
I was thinking of buying a Waterpic to see if "jet washing" my mouth might help.
Does it seem that I am doing all I could be doing, or not even close?/
Thoughts and advice appreciated.
