I had 33 days of radiation, it fried, my mouth, taste buds esophagus, and throat. The last two weeks of treatment were awful. I never had to have a feeding tube, but did need several IV's. Today is my 5th day post treatment, and am wondering when taste buds will return, when my throat won't be so sore. When I will be able to get a good nights sleep. I have read about taking zinc to help with taste buds, but don't know what form or strength, or how often to take it. Also read about taking vitamin B-12. Any thoughts?
