I am 3 weeks post chemo and radiation. The pain when I swallow is excrutiating, so I use my G-Tube for nutrition. I swallow little bits of water or tea, but that's all I am willing to do for now. I rarely take my tylenol 3 for pain, because I don't like the way I feel on the meds, and it constipates me. I do feel less pain when I take it though!
What I want to know is how long does the pain with swallowing usually last?? I know everyone is different, so I'd like to hear what your experience was/is. At least I'll have an idea, and then maybe will be more willing to take the pain meds, or not.
Thanks for your input.
