I have had lung and breast cancer and now John's Hopkins has diagnosed me with Polycethemia Vera and severe depression. All of my teeth are bad now and are either rotting at the gum or breaking off. I have 2 that have broken off at the gum. My two front teeth have broken in two and slowly chipping away. can someone out there please help me smile again? I can't take much more. Thank you, Paula Wheeler 540-672-8715

    Chemo and teeth
    That is a new one on me? Since I had false teeth when I was diagnosed with cancer, that is one thing I have not had to worry about. I am going to pray someone who is either a dentist or has one in the family will read about your condition and offer to step in and help you.
