Healthy Diet is beyond my reach. With extreme dry mouth & no saliva, and taste buds shot as well, I have difficulty eating most foods. Rare hamburger works. Eggs work. No chicken or Pork. Some fish OK. Sashimi is great but hard to find good Sashimi here in Florida. Allergic to nuts. Most fruit too tough to swallow.& tasteless. Carbs go down smoothly. Bread is out but soft cakes work. Ensure Max is my friend. I am 2/12 years post Chemo & Radiation for Throat Cancer.

Thank you Jamie. I don't see my PCP till July, and my Oncologist in June. Will go ahead and use the Flonase.

I feel like I have water in my ear. had the same symptoms about a year ago..went through all the exams, all negative..couldn't figure out what was causing the 'sensation'. Dr suggested Using Flonase, and it cleared it up. Now I have the same on the other ear. Should I be concerned? I am 2 years post treatment (35 rads, 7 cisplatin) for throat cancer. At 2 year check in January was NED.

I was put on Dexamethasone/Nystatin solution..swish 3x daily, spit out. Seems to have helped..although I still get thrush occasionally
