I have got through 30 sessions with the bloody mask - I wobbled a few times but kept going forward. 

Now to recuperation and getting back to full health

  • Thank you for this post.  I loved logging in today and reading this.  I’m 10 sessions down and woke up today with small ulcers on my tongue. The thought of Monday is not filling me with joy but reading everything from you all really does help .

    thank you to all who take the time to support all of us coming behind Pray tone1

  • If you're struggling with ulcers you may want to give this a try..GENGIGEL FIRST AID ORAL FLUID.. you'll have to pay for it, but it worked wonders for me during treatment.. it may be worth a try, if you have nothing that is working for you..

    That’s about par for the course. Do tell your rt team how you are feeling every day. They will liaise with your CNS to make sure you have everything you need.

  • Thank you, today is the first they have made an appearance so will mention it on Monday.

    the hospital did give me two different things for dry mouth but not ulcers.  They are quite small so fingers crossed . 

  • Thanks Peter

    yip one third of the way through .  I did buy and now started taking some paracetamol today.  Hoping that will keep me covered till Monday.
