Hey All~ Last week was my first of 4 rounds of chemo. I hated it. But it is done and only three more to go. I am now being hit with all the side effects this week. My mouth sores are horrible. One day I woke up with lips so big I could compete with Angelie Jolie. (I did ask my onc nurse since they did so well with the lips can they do something about my boobs now.)
I tried to ward the sores off with salt water rinses and the dr gave me some Gelclair which is supposed to coat the sores or something. I am not convinced it works all that great and therefore not really worth the $$$
Does anyone have any helpful tips or hints to help ward off, lessen, stop the mouth sores from chemo??
