Good morning ladies. My best friend is going through this ordeal of BC, you all are very brave and I admire you very much.

Would any of you have any suggestions about how you manage mouth sores?  Thank you very much.

      Oh my gosh! Pamela, that's awful! I'm sorry that must have been awful. I have had thrush in mouth from Diabetic onset, but nothing like that. Thank you very much for the reply, I will pass along your advice. I wish you well.

    Hi Jenn,

    When I was going through chemo, I had been told by one of my sister's friends to bring popsicles and eat them during the Tx.  I didn't end up with mouth sores but can't say if it was due to the popsicles. 

    Hope this helps and tell your friend to hang in there.  Its tough but there is light at the end of the tunnel !!

    best, S
