famograham Posted September 14, 2008 Share Posted September 14, 2008 Hi everybody, I feel terrible for my Mama, her very first pain (from this cancer) has arrived She's had 12 radiation treatments since Aug 27th. On Thursday (2 days ago), she started having some pain in her esophagus. She said it feels kind of like when you swallow something too large, or very pointy, and it takes forever to go down. She rated the pain at about a 5 out of 10. It's happening after she swallows, or coughs, or sneezes, or burps, or bends over...or sometimes for no reason...you get the idea. She's a bit upset because she thought she was going to get away "scott free" without any side effects...poor Mama! She's feeling a little pissed off at the world today...and I made sure to tell her that's OK! So she, and I would like to know...is this normal, have you experienced this, and what else might she expect??? Thanks so much, xoxoxo Linda Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
