Radiation Side Effects

Hello everybody! 

My mum has recently undergone, and a week ago completed her radiation treatment for cancer in her nose (non-spreadable, thank god).

However, she is experiencing side effects due to this treatment. Her nose is hurting a lot, which we know is normal but it’s bothering her quite a bit regardless. She has tried paracetamol, which lessons the pain a bit, but not by much. 

Any tips/experience how to minimise/lessen the symptoms?

Thank you!

    Sorry to hear your’s mother’s pain is bothering her. I’d suggest either ringing her GP or her Medical team and asking them to prescribe her a stronger painkiller.

    Hope she feels better soon.

    Best wishes
