    Hello, This, and welcome to the CSN H&N discussion support board.

    You have certainly gone through a lot with 2 surgeries and being halfway done with follow-up radiation of 2 types Proton and IMRT. Sorry, you are starting to experience soreness pretty severely with swallowing, although it is part and parcel of this treatment scenario.

    For pain, I have recently come across this combination mentioned either here or in another source I have read.

    For Pain--

    Ibuprofen and acetaminophen 3 pills each - we call it the combo and it really does relieve pains and aches.

    There is also liquid over-the-counter pain relief also you might try--

    There are 2 pain meds I was prescribed during treatment but I don't think they would work for you because of driving but you may ask your doctor.

    1-Liquid Hydrocodone Hydrocodone bitartrate 10mg, acetaminophen 300mg; per 15mL; tropical fruit punch flavor; contains alcohol 7%.

    And the other was a tablet-Oxycodone hydrochloride and Acetaminophen oral tablet, Amneal, 5 mg / 325 mg

    Stay strong, Wishing You The Best and of course, our motto here is---

    NEGU (Never Ever Give Up)

    Take Care, May God Bless & Watch Over You
