This is really strange. Finished rad 3 weeks ago. But during the last week of it right after the treatment my lower lip swelled up. It went down within the hour. Next day told them about it. Of course they said no way rad could do that. This AM I woke up with a toothache and 3 capped teeth I had were silver. Those teeth are all in a row. I'm kind of freaking out here. Its like the enamel color melted off. Going to dentist tomorrow. Anyone ever hear of this?

It's worth investigating, of course, but not everything that happens to our bodies from here on out is related to breast cancer or treatments.
