I had radiation and chemo for cancer of the larynx about 17 months ago and am doing pretty well. I just wondered if anyone has figured out any way to generate saliva? I still don't have any so have to keep water by my side all the time. I do use stopper's 4 at night when my mouth is the dryest. I don't seem to have improved at all and having such a dry mouth really keeps me from eating most carbs, such as bread, cakes, crackers, cookies, etc. My other problem is constant chapped and peeling lips. I use Aquaphor and vasoline all the time, but nothing helps. I am always aware of them. Any ideas would help!
