I am out 4.5 weeks from radiation (no chemo) and still have mouth sore and sore throat. Is this normal? I also developed thrush for the first time this week. Doc has prescribed nystatin.
I also have dry cough becuase of dry throat. Some days are good and some days i have cough all night. Xylimelts still burns my mouth so cannot use them. I use oragel and stoppers 4.
I am still on liquid diet becuase mos of the stuff burn my tongue, even banana burns! I can eat water melon and avocado. I am getting the taste back slowly. I could tasts salt last week ( a little bit).
Is this normal? I feel like i am healing slower. I am not takinb anything to boost my immune system. Going to look into some of the suggestions given in one of the other post.
