      I rinsed my mouth with salt water. It did seem to help it heal quicker.

      It seems to be melon season. They are so juicy. I'm sure the salt water gargling will help too. I've a friend who used lydocaine for his throat. It is by doctor prescription only. I used nigella stative oil but your doc won't like it. Sloan Kettering came out against its use saying it made their patient's too strong to be affected by the chemotherapy.or render the chemotherapy ineffective:

      If you can't eat, juice fresh fruit and veggies. If you don't own a juicer, use a blender and a strainer or cheesecloth to strain the blend ino juice by the glass.

      Stay strong.

    Procedure or Surgery (Debulking surgery): My surgery is scheduled for June 17, 2013...my tumors have become smaller and more freely movable on exam. My CEA 125 had dropped dramatically.

      If your CA 125 drops, that is good news. Mine was at CA 350 just prior to surgery. Was down to 14; now creeping up to 19. Anything under 20 indicates that there is still probably no cancerous cells. Would like to hear more about your "debulking." Tx

      Just curious; my CA 125 was 350 before surgery. What are your #'s now; that is, if you want to share. I had debulking sugeery too (believe that included removing nodules that were in my lymph nodes) Those were benign. My Omentum was removed, too. (that is the outer lining of your abdomen just under your skin) Do keep me posted and keep the faith. . .

      My surgeon got 70% of my cancer; Chemo got the rest after 3 months. However, I have to checked every 3 months. Prayers are with you.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): Each round of chemo ( every 3 weeks ) got worse with more and more side effects.

    Oh No (Misdiagnosed): My internist treated me for diverticulosis for one year when I actually had a rapidly growing ovarian cancer
