Hello everyone
My dad is on his third week RT+Cetuximab.
He was generally dealing with it ok, but recently got the ulcers inside his mouth and became spiting blood. Has anyone an advice on how to deal with that?

That can't be nice for him - RT -it's a tough regime. Where is the source of his blood? The 3rd week onward can be very trying for RT patients and what you describe is not unusual.
He needs a doc/consultants opinion on what to take for relief. Oral morphine - morphine patches. Only the medics can give the best advice.
The next few weeks are tough sad to say. That's RT . Make sure he takes plenty of fluid and nutritious drinks etc. I presume he has had some type of feeding tube put in?
All the best - tony k
