Thanks Diane!

like your husband, this is the only time we have seen my Dad cry. My mom ( after 42 yrs of marriage, said the same thing)

he also wanted to stop the treatment about 3/4 through.

He has the morphine patch and takes something every 4 hours for pain.

this is really a wonderful group of people, thanks for your help!

The patch didn't work for my hub- we ended up with Actiq pops; he could use as little or as much as he needed & it was the only thing that helped the mouth/throat pain. I don't know if it's because he sucked on the pop & it coated everything but that was the best. It's made for cancer patients yet they always give the patch.

The husband used the magic mouthwash.  He thought it was just a simple , short lasting bandaid.  Taste bad.  There is a new product out called Mugard.  It is a Rx rinse & works great.  It is available through Bioscript only.  Can't get it from the local pharmacy.  Very pricy too.  About 1,000 for 4 bottles but was very fortunate that the insurance paid for it.  I think the manfacturer will even send you a sample bottle. 

Another product we he used was Caphasol.  It's a 2 part mix that you use as a rinse.  We actually have an extra case if you are interested.  Let me know & we would be happy to send it to you.

Good Luck, Brenda
