My husband (C) is currently on Folfiri and Cetuximab. He has had 14 cycles so far and I presume this is to continue.
We havnt seen the oncologist since the beginning of February when C was waiting for liver and lung resections. These were subsequently cancelled as the chemo has reduced the mets so much nothing is showing on the scans.
Tonight he was eating a piece of chocolate (the one with mini Smarties and jelly bits in) and a piece of tooth/filling broke off a rear molar that has a major filling in it. Just what he needs at the moment 😔
I think he is not supposed to have any dental treatment during chemo without permission but what is the usual procedure? Should he see the dentist first to see what needs doing or does he contact the oncologist even though he dosnt know how bad it is?
Its really upset him tonight as its just one more thing that has to be sorted. It was my idea to get the chocolate out so I feel bad as well.
