Is it supposed to feel like a perpetual cold?
I'm am 10 days post rad and both my ears feel a little stuffed so my hearing gets affected. I can still plug my nose and pop them and that makes them feel a bit better. More frequently and usually overnight, my nose or one nostril gets plugged, which makes me breathe through my mouth and ends up drying everything up inside, not fun trying to sleep for long periods, otherwise my mouth and tongue are still fairly moist. During the day, my nose is clear.
Both par for the course? I know I'm still cooking, and I realize my mouth will probably start getting fairly dry and stay that way, but did anybody get permanent hearing changes? I did not get tinnitus from the Cisplatin so it's not that.
