"Sunburned" Tongue

jgwright Member Posts: 242
Well, getting this run of radiation for the tumor in my mouth has caused "tongue sunburn". Kinda unpleasant, but if it works... Monday is the last day for radiation, and sometime the middle of August, I'm going to finish this run of chemo and get a scan. MRI? CT? PET? Don't know yet.

    Will be praying for a good scan

    Great to hear from you!! Tongue sunburn does not sound like fun. I had mouth sores from chemo but I could still eat if I was careful about what I ate.

    Having a very sore tongue must make eating a challenge. I will be praying the scan (what ever kind it is) shows the tumors are shrinking.
