I’m not gonna lie. Mucositis might be the most unpleasant side effect I have dealt with yet. Currently I have an ulcer on the side of my tongue, on both inner cheeks, and covering the back of my throat and trailing down my esophagus. Excess mucous that causes me to gag and choke is part of this not so pretty picture.
Sucks and certainly has a negative impact on quality of life. However, and this is a big however, my breathing has improved. Markedly.
I can’t live if I can’t breathe. These side effects blow but there aren’t going to kill me.
So there you go. The things we do to stay alive. And I have already noted that I am willing to do just about anything to stay at this party.
Even the stuff that’s hard to swallow. Pun intended.
