I am 16 years post treatment this and I noticed that my dry mouth symptom is getting worse and worse since last June. During day time, I have to sip water every 15 ~ 20 minutes otherwise, My mouth will feel very sticky. Needless to say, every morning my mouth is sticky and burning, I talked to ENT doctor asking for medicine to stimulate saliva but the doctor said it has been so far out from radiation, the medicine won't work any more. I am wondering if anybody here has experienced similar situation like this, and how do you handle it?

Thanks a lot
