((((Raven)))) so sorry this is happening. I will send good wishes your way. My son had really bad mouth sores, we don't know why, and they gave him a triamcinalone ointment he applied directly to the sores to reduce the swelling and the vasoline base of the ointment coated the sores well. Lots of docs do the miracle mouthwash and all but don't do the ointment. The ointment can really help along with other treatments in reducing the pain, swelling and inflammation. It also makes the lidocaine from a swish last longer.
I hope that you get through this rough patch and things get better soon. You have got to be worn out. Please try to pamper yourself and let others do for you if you can until you get stronger. I have been through a different type of injectable chemo--interferon (an immune booster--it was great with lupus--just peachy). Anyway, I hope you get better soon and get through this therapy with success ASAP!!
