Tammy Posted November 8, 2004 Share Posted November 8, 2004 My Mom has been doing well for the past year with having Stage 3B. At the begining she did several rounds of Chemo and had radiation. The cancer then spread to her adrenal gland and more radiation was done. All her CT scans have been coming up good. She has been on Iressa for about 6-7 months and that has kept everything under control. She has been having problems swallowing for the past 2-3 months. There are times when she can eat an do well and other times she said it just feels like the food gets caught and she will cough and sometimes vomit. She talked to her Onc Dr and he gave her Acid Reflux pills to try and if that didn't help he would do the scope down her throat. Has anyone had this problem? I know after radiation she has a rough time swallowing but that healed and she did well till all of a sudden. I am very nervous that the cancer has spread to her throat. She is waiting to talk with the Dr at her next visit in Dec but when dealing with Cancer that to me is not soon enough. Any advise or knowlege would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
