what you had done to produce so much saliva....I might want to do it, too!! Laughing  My guess is that yes, it is probably normal.  It's probably not all saliva, either.....when mucous membranes are disturbed they produce mucous for protection.  I'm guessing that is what is going on.

PS....too bad you can't save and store it for after rads.....sounds gross right now, but there's coming a time in your near future that you'll be wishing that too.
