Went to my dentist and was very surprised to find out that tooth decay is prevelant after chemo.  I haven't had a cavity in YEARS and now have five!  Two under crowns and two behind veneers......  Just saying....

Sorry you got this bad news, but thanks for giving us all a heads up on the potential for dental issues post-chemo.  I have not had any cavities in the almost 4 1/2 years post-treatment, but I did have to have gum grafting done on 3 areas in my mouth a little over a year ago.  I don't know if there's any connection to the chemo or not.  I hope all your dental work will go well.
