Please can anyone advise me if someone they are looking after suffers from increased saliva output due to chemo or as I like to say lemon treatment as I hate the other word!
He constantly needs to spit and it's getting him down.
So wish our lives were back to pre 23rd August
One forum I never expected to be using.
I can't answer your question I'm afraid. My husband had operations and radiotherapy, but goodness knows the side effects are so varied. I wonder if you might get more success posting in the cancer experiences group? Worth a try anyway. You might also find his specialist nurse will know, they're always happy to answer questions. Otherwise, perhaps the Ask an Expert page, where you can message one of the experts and they'll get back to you. I hope you find some more information.
If you find dust in my house, write your name in it. When the signatures overlap I'll get the polish.
Thank you Looby Lou. I will ask on there now. Best of luck with everything. It's truly a shit time for patients and relatives alike .
Sorry to hear about your husbands problem with his "lemon treatment"
