Hi guys & girls: Haven't been on in ages but I'm in my 2nd re-occurrence of breast cancer which metastasized to my spine. I just finished 13 days of radiation to my mid thoracics and it's caused the most painful case of esophagitis. I've lost roughly 10 lbs from it and it was suppose to be easing up by now, 10 days after my last treatment, but it's not. Have any of you had to deal with this nasty side effect and what was most helpful? I've been taking the "magic mouthwash" religiously; have a 50 mg. patch of fentanyl and take 5/325 hydrocodones every two hours but still manage to be in pain and starving to boot. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
