Re: [MOL] Lisa !

Hi Lisa, I can't remember if I have welcomed you to our forum.  I know I don't have chemo brain; but I do have tamoxifen brain, does that count?  In any event glad to have you on board, warmly, your friend, lillian

Subject: Re: [MOL] sore throat and caughing

I have never heard of a reaction like that from radiation therapy, but ask her doctor about the effects of chemotherapy. Sometimes chemotherapy can erode the mucous membranes, including the mouth and throat. I am not a doctor, but I have heard of this reactoin from certain types of chemo. Check it out.    LisaFix
