I usually get my chemo treatment on Tuesday, by Friday I am suctioning out blood from my mouth. Does anyone else have this problem. I have a peg tube, i cant take anything by mouth.

till you're down to hamberger in your mouth. Be very gentle with the suctioner...I had bleeding mouth sores for 3 weeks after every 5FU treatment. Glad you have a PEG, so you don't have to try and feed yourself while you have hamberger mouth...
