repost for new member, but 2 year survivor

Hello, This is my first post to this message board. I finished radiation 2 yrs ago for tongue cancer and cancer on the inside of my cheek.  I have been treated on and off with Nystatin and fluconazole for 2 years. Now I am under the care of an infectious disease specialist in addition to my head and neck surgeon. I take 100 mg of fluconazole every other day and swish and spit Nystatin (1 tsp) twice a day. I have been told that eventually the thrush that I am keeping at bay will no longer respond to my current treatment. It scares me. I do not know what to do.

Is there another drug out there for me or do I need to go to a major cancer center for options?

nabbias01, this is a very old thread and it may get missed by those who would have some answers.  i suggest u copy ur post and paste it in a new thread.  at the top of the pg w/topic u will see "start a new topic".  just click on the and paste your post.  i'm sure you will gt a better group of responses.  i never had thrush so i'm sorry but i have no suggestions.  good luck.

God bless,

You should probably start a new thread for this, since this thread is so old.

Have you tried chewing acidopholis tablets along with the anti-fungals, and see if the combination of the two might kick some thrush butt?  You can chew several during the day, I don't think there is a real limit....they don't taste good....actually they're just pretty tasteless and since you've already been through treatment, you know tasteless is pretty doable, right :)??
