      Sorry for your situation. OHNC treatments are daunting. I went thru this 20yrs ago. Your mouth sores, as you saw, should go away eventually following cessation of treatment. These new sores should be seen by an oncology doctor, and he/she should know of the Rx drugs and ointments to treat these sores. I wish you well.

      For my mouth sores, I was prescribed something they refer to as "Magic Mouthwash". It's a rinse and spit type of treatment. Only a little is needed each time you use it. I usually hold mine in my mouth for a few minutes until my mouth is numb and then spit it out. I believe it is made with Benadryl, Lidocaine, Maalox, and Nystatin. Your doctor will be familiar with it. Hope you get some relief.

      My husband has a universal blood type and he donates every eight weeks. And now that my son is healed, he also donates. Blood is a gift of life.

      They never gave me a choice in 1998 when I almost died from one out of 3 surgeries they did on my colon.

    Side Effects (Nasal passsges clogged): Could be from surgery, but hard to breathe. Using Neilmed rinse and salt water baking soda. No relief and no sleep. Ideas?

      Let your doctor know. It could well be from surgery. A deviated septum or some blockage.
