Hello, This is my first post to this message board. I finished radiation 2 yrs ago for tongue cancer and cancer on the inside of my cheek. I have been treated on and off with Nystatin and fluconazole for 2 years. Now I am under the care of an infectious disease specialist in addition to my head and neck surgeon. I take 100 mg of fluconazole every other day and swish and spit Nystatin (1 tsp) twice a day. I have been told that eventually the thrush that I am keeping at bay will no longer respond to my current treatment. It scares me. I do not know what to do.
Is there another drug out there for me or do I need to go to a major cancer center for options?
