Was wondering, i've been brushing and rinsing lots since last rad treatment thursday, like three times a day (ok that lots for me I used to only brush at night)but have found that my gums feel really rough (like sandpaper). Is this a by-product of the radiation treatment? I thought it was my tongue the first couple days, but now that i've been brushing like I should have been doing all my life (not like i've got bad teeth or anything) my teeth are smooth as glass and my gums are rough, where as the gums have always been smooth. If it was the rads that caused it, will my gums go back to normal? or are they always gonna be rough now?
