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.
