Sore throat


TJM

Recommended Posts

Hope all are well.

I've noticed my soar throat is much worse now than a few days ago. Feels just like it did during radiation.

Have a CT scan next Tuesday. I hate these kind of decisions.

Yes...called advice nurse but never got thru.

Not to worried, but it does hurt like hell to swallow 

Peace

Tom

I was trying to come up with a response other than 'Yikes' but that's all I've got. Any chance this is the thyroid issue?

That's my fear

Sucky, sucky & sucky.  Got any Manuka honey in your kitchen??   Ice chips might help for a bit too.  Hang in there buddy. 

By gosh I do. Keep forgetting about it. Wish I knew what was causing it. Feels like I'm swallowing a small stone.

Tom, INA might be able to help with some throat friendly foods.  It's a free service available.  You can get started here: https://lungevity.org/for-patients-caregivers/support-services/meet-ina-your-personal-intelligent-nutrition-assistant

Still sore but the oxy helps it. I'll stop taking any to see how bad it gets.

Called the advice nurse three times and never connected. Also sent note to docs...no response.

I get my next scan on Tuesday. I will ask if that scan will cover my throat.

Thx for asking.

Hey Tom - 

How are you feeling? When do you get results?

5 to 7 business days. I requested it be read quicker but have heard zero back. See my onc next week.

Throat still hurts when I swallow but not noticeably worse. Thx for asking

Tom,

Are you using the Manuka Honey?  If so, is it helping you at all?

Lou

I cant find it!

When I used it I had to order it online, but it is so worth it.  It helped me after a surgery that really left my vocal chords in a bad way.  You can read about it here.  Then you can order it from many sources.  Just make sure that it is from Australia and authentic.

Right, but if you need it now, why not order some more? The link I posted has a small size for $14--seems like it's worth it to get some relief. I don't think honey EVER goes bad (I read somewhere that it can keep literally hundreds of years).
