This forum is a light in a dark tunnel. I'm so grateful to everyone who takes the time to post and share information on their experiences to help others. My mom just got diagnosed with Stage 4 nasopharyngeal carcinoma. We are all very worried about her and want to make sure that we can give her the best care possible. I've been speaking with Phrannie51 and she encouraged me to post so that everyone can benefit.
I had a quick question, my mom has just finished her 2nd round of radiation and she is already feeling the dry throat. (They have her on the typical 7 week radiation + 3 cisplatin followed by 3 month adjuvent chemo of cisplatin+5u) I've heard good things about Manuka honey, has anyone else here tried that as a way to coat the throat to stop the dryness? Are there any other alternatives to deal with the dry throat?
Thanks so much in advance everyone, this forum is godsend
