Re: Radiation?

i completely understand where you are coming from. it is very hard. god will keep you strong. it really shouldnt be too bad for her. your right the lidocaine cant be swallowed but can be gargled. also there is something called aspergum. it is a gum you chew that helps numb the mouth and throat. you can ask the doc about if she needs it. my tumors shrunk considerable with the radiation which im sure it will do the same for her. blessings to you ....melissa
