I had oesophageal cancer 3 years ago and as a result had part of my stomach removed (ivor lewis op)
Since then I am suffering from a very dry mouth and my lips and tongue feel permanently swollen. I have seen countless consultants and dentists both on the NHS and privately including a hospital in London. The only conclusion is that the chemo has destroyed my salivary glands and I have to live with it . I have sprays and constantly suck sweets.
I wonder if anyone else experiences this and if so what do your do to help the symptoms
