    Painless Experience: Strongly Disagree

    Saliva changes (thick saliva)

    Side Effects

    I finished 35 radiation treatments six months ago and am now in remission. I'm still having issues with excess phlem in my throat making it difficult to swallow some foods and pills. Is this normal?
