Rob just finished Rad #10 and he has lost all taste. A little fast we thought but everyone is different. He is complaining of a sore spot on side of tongue although radiation is tonsil, I am sure this is normal also
Is sensitivity to cold drinks a problem? He has never really been sensitive to hot of cold foods and now says the drinks i make are very cold and alomost hurt.
He doesn't want to eat solid food most of the time as the taste is bad, not that it is hard to chew or swallow. All this seems so early in treatment.
He does not have a feeding tube and the hospital prefers not to give him one. I really don't know what I am gonna do to keep him eating and swallowing when it is this hard now.
