I just had my 2nd treatment of Avastin on Friday. On Saturday I felt like I had a toothache. My jaw is sore to the touch. My gums on the one side are extremely painful. I know mouth pain is a side effect. I wasn’t sure if that meant from sores (not present) or just pain in gums. Has anyone else on Avastin experienced the mouth pain? What can you tell me about it?
Mouth pain with avastin: I just had my 2nd... - My Ovacome
I have also experienced a tender mouth pain, infact one side of my tongue has white patches just on the left.It is also difficult to eat really hot or cold food.I will be having my 6 avastin today.I mentioned this to the nurse and she is going to give me some gel to put on 3 times per day Hope you can get something sorted. xx
I had jaw pain like toothache on Avastin and they sent me to the maxilla facial clinic for a head scan. Turned out to be a tooth problem but couldn’t have it pulled whilst on Avastin so lived on pain killers for a couple of months until I could have an extraction. Do report it as it should be followed up, hopefully it is just a temporary thing! Xxx
To be honest I cannot tell if it originates from Avastin or the Carb/Tax chemo, but I experience some sore places in my mouth as well, usually in the first week after chemo/avastin. Essentially, some patches on my gum and the tip of my tongue are very sensitive (although not raw i.e. no open wound at this point)... almost as if burned or bitten on. Plus the teeth are hypersensitive to acid and temperature.
Brushing and rinsing with a suitable mouthwash after each meal does help, and applying some oral gel onto the sore spots. I use Glandomed mouthwash and Oralife gel. Just check in your local pharmacy what they have available and recommend.
All the best. Maus
