Sore throat from hell

User
Posted 23 Feb 2018 at 07:13
Good morning,

I am currently undergoing Docataxel Chemotherapy treatment (number 14 so far) and I am currently experiencing the sore throat from hell. Fortunately I do not have a temperature.

I am about to go off and see my GP but has anyone else had these symptoms and can you advise me of what worked in your case?

I remember frozen pineapples being a favourite some while back?

Regards

Dave

If your throat is that sore Dave I would have thought anything acidic like pineapple would just make it feel worse.

When we have a really bad throat we gargle with low dose dispersible aspirin but don't swallow it. John finds it deadens his throats and helps them to clear up more quickly (but then his isn't caused by his treatment)

We can't control the winds - but we can adjust our sails
