Mouth sores

Party in my mouth… not the fun kind. And these are only in the tongue and throat. I have some on my lower gums too. Unfortunately, this is a common side effect of chemotherapy. My oncologist has already prescribed me a “magic mouthwash”, which numbs the mouth and has a topical antibiotic in it as well.

After a few days, it wasn’t improving in all spots. I went to the doctor and it looks like those white spots (where I wrote ‘not teeth’) is actually thrush. So, I’m adding Nystatin to my drug repertoire.

More blended and soft foods to come.

If this post was useful, feel free to buy me a coffee or contribute towards some of my uninsured medical expenses.
