Cough

Recommended Posts

Hope everyone is doing well. My first scans since I finished radiation will be February 12th.  I am a little nervous!  I am sure this is normal!  I still have a cough that sounds terrible. I developed this after radiation.  Worries me!

Kimi, 

Here's hoping to a good scan! I will be thinking of you!

It's not uncommon to develop a cough after radiation. Things can become inflamed and irritated. You still want to bring it up with your doc just in case something else is causing it. Just to be on the safe side.

Take care,

Steff

Kimi,

I had a cough during and for sometime after radiation also.  Try and limit your contact with people given the serious outbreak of the flu and of course, let you doctor know if the coughing changes.

Stay the course.

Thank you Steff.  I think everything that goes wrong is because my cancer is back. I will be glad to get pass that!  Are you finished with your treatments?

Kimi- we immediately jump to the worse scenario too when something new pops up with my mom. She is on keytruda, so will be taking it until it stops working or can't handle the side effects.

I still have a cough.  My doctor said I had inflammation in my right lung from radiation.  My scan was otherwise good.  I was so happy!
