Does anyone know anything that works on the mucous? My husband had surgery in March, began radiation and chemo April 30, and is experiencing the mucositis. He says there is nothing coming up to spit but he sounds awful and is coughing constantly. I don’t know how he can be still for his treatment tomorrow.
Thanks for any advice.
I have had treatment recently for tonsil cancer, the thick spit is awful. I rinse and gargle all the time with bicarb and water about a quarter of a teaspoon in a cup of water , I don’t swallow it . It helps to liquify the spit and helps nasty taste in the mouth . I wish your husband luck with his treatment
