Are you still feeling a burning mouth and tongue after a few months?
4 months after radiation and low dose chemo my mouth and tongue still burn and feels like a mouthfull of hot peppers whenever I try to eat. Soft foods (eggs) and soup broth are my primary diet. Still have the white coating on half my tongue and tongue still feels numb and swollen. Doc said it will all go away eventually. My 8 weeks of treatment took place at the number 1 hospital in Bangkok. It is 400k away from my village home so I can't just up and see the Doc on a whim. Pet scan after treatment shows no sign of recurring cancer but I really want a steak and pasta dinner. Can't find magic mouthwash here so rely on saly/baking soda solution to gargle. Any success stories out there?
