salty taste in mouth after radiation please help
 
Hi. My 85 yr old mother in law was diagnosised with lung cancer almost one year ago.It is now in the bones and esophagus (sorry if spelled wrong).She underwent
radiation on 2 separate occasions for several sessions.She has a terrible salty taste in her mouth and alot of phlegm.The doctor says the salt is from the radiation but it prevents her from eating the way she would like.The doctor says she is in the last stages with maybe 4 mths left to live but no one really knows for sure.I feel so badly for her and am running out of ideas.Any ideas or suggestions out there.I am grateful for your support.
