My husband is now 10 weeks post treatment for stage 4 tonsil cancer. His PET scan came back free from cancer. Praise God. However, he had an extreme reaction to chemotherapy and radiation therapy and developed mucositis. The sores healed by six weeks out. However he still has thick phelm and blisters in his throat. The doctor was surprised that his throat was still covered in blisters.
He is on a feeding tube, but in order to get it removed he has to take the amount of calories he's receiving through the tube orally for two weeks before they'll remove it.
He has had no relief from pain. He is currently taking no medication for the pain because he says it doesn't work. He simply won't eat because of the pain. I tried giving him the Hydroco with Acetaminophen but it made him constipated and severe headache. He now refuses to take it. I tried 600 ml of just Ibuprofen and he said it did nothing. I've tired Aloe juice, and he says it burns. Ice cream is too cold. I did try Cloraseptic spray and that will give him 20 minutes of relief.
My question is this. Who has had these blisters and how did you get relief?
Thank you very much!
