I am really following your posts.

I am now at 9 rads. After just 8, I developed a noticeable "frog" in my throat. Although my mouth and throat felt reasonably OK, but for the frog and sore tip of tongue; I felt generally lousy all day Saturday.

I was concerned that it is hitting me early (still am), but Sunday I felt pretty good and despite today's zap still seemed OK so I went out to dinner with friends.

I really hope I can make it to 20 like you have before needing my PEG.

I haven't been putting much down the PEG. I was supposed to get up to two cans a day this week. Wednesday I have my appointment with the dietitian and she will not be happy.

I just despise the PEG and probably will until I need it.

Keep posting so I will know what to expect.
