Thrush! Went in for my weekly checkup today and was complaining that my throat was sore and that my mouth felt really like cotton. Not much of a white tongue but when he looked down my throat, there it was lurking. Never crossed my mind that it would come up again this far post treatment (I'm 10 weeks). He told me it could be as much as six months out given how much radiation I had.
Thrush by itself is no prize but I'm also trying to get off of this damn Fentanyl so life is a bit of a challenge right now. Tonight I go from 25 mcg to 12 mcg. I'm not sure how my body is going to react to a 50% decrease in the drug. It wasn't at all happy going from 50 mcg to 37 mcg and then 37 mcg to 25 mcg so tonight/tomorrow should be fun.
