Carolyn Flournoy Posted July 26, 2003 Share Posted July 26, 2003 Quick background my husband was Dx. 12-13-02 lung cancer 111B. Went on chemo 12-30-02 Carbo/gemzar. Stopped after 2 treatments pneumonia and tumor had'nt shrunk enough. Started radiation & chemo 3-12-03 for 7 weeks 5 days a week. Half way though radiation developed dry heaves with some phlegm doctor said this was normal. Now 3 months later he still has the dry heaves the only thing that helps is taking Lorazepam a relaxer. Nausea med. don't seems to work. Anyone have any ideas of what could be causing dry heaves for 3 months. Could it be some damage from radiation blood work seems to be normal. Has anyone had this problem. Thanks Carolyn Flournoy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
