My husband just finished 6 weeks of rads last week. The pain this week has gotten worse. He takes about 6 oxycodones a day, but still has moments where he literally shivers with pain when he swallows or has a bit of acid reflux. He's taking something for that, but it's not 100% working. He takes all his medicine and nutrition through a peg tube. Thank god for that thing being put in way back even prior to surgery.
Anyway, I just hate seeing him in so much pain, and it doesn't seem to be getting better. Are we just hoping for too much too soon? He's always been such a fast healer through all of this, the chemo, the surgery, but this is discouraging him quite a bit.
Thanks, y'all. Without this board, we'd be so in the dark.
