I didn't have to have any chemo after my RC but my Mom had chemo years ago for her cancer and she found that the only thing that could get past that metallic taste in her mouth was Altoids because the peppermint in them is so strong. I have heard many people complain of that metallic taste in their mouth and unfortunately it seems to go along with the chemo. I know Clur has just gone through a round of chemo and if she comes on I am sure she will offer some suggestions. Also, someone named Zachary has a chemo blog he is writing and you can find it under cystectomy in a thread called Standing on My Head. It is a very good account of what he is going through and might help your hubby.
I wish you both Gods blessings to help you get through this trying time. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
MERRY CHRISTMAS SAM AND TO YOUR HUSBAN
Thanks for your enput.
Never had chemo nor radation but this old preacher
will keep you and yours in my prayers
I will tell you this I know what it means to have your
mate and love standing with you at a time like this.
Seeing the pain and suffering and helples to do any thing
about it. May GOD bless you and give you the strengh
to help him fight that cancer and win.
