Title: RE: [MOL] Oral care and cancer

Chris:  Your father's doctor never told him that his gums would bleed, to rinse his mouth regularly, and to use a soft toothbrush?  My doctor advised me NOT to floss my teeth during chemo.  I can now, but I still must be careful because my gums still have a tendency to bleed.  She must have known about this.  I wonder why she didn't tell him?  Kathy
