I've started external beam radiation treatments and would like to hear from people who have under gone them. Today was my 8th treatment of 30. My throat is already getting sore and swallowing is quite uncomfortable. I know it is just going to get worse. I'm sure my oncologist will put me on meds when I see him on Monday. I'd love to hear about your experience. How long did it take after the treatments were over to swallow without pain? Was anything particularly soothing?
