Kristi Posted May 8, 2009 Share Posted May 8, 2009 Hi everyone! I hope you're all doing good, got another question about my Dad. He's been on a break from radiation and chemo for two weeks now but has developed a severe sore throat. I'm assuming it's from the radiation and his doc told him today that it would go away but didn't recommend anything. He also has had an upset stomach but was given pills for that which seems to help. The sore throat though is a killer he says. He can't hardly stand to eat because of it. Can anyone recommend anything? I know of a few OTC things he can try for sore throats but wanted to check here because you guys are just so good at giving great advice. Just to give a quick update on him. He got a prescription for the oxygen which he's using and seems to really help but aside from that though he says he just feels bad all the time. He goes back in two weeks for a new scan to see what progress the treatments have made. Mom says he's passed out (not sure if a true seizure or just losing consciousness) several times and stops breathing. Has a bunch of cuts and bruises because of this. Thank God my Mom is right there with him at all times to bring him around. Please say a prayer for him if you would be so kind. He's a tough cookie though, still mowing the lawn once a week! Thank you, as always!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
