tnmynatt Posted January 10, 2006 Share Posted January 10, 2006 Charlie has been coughing much worse in the last few days. We saw his rad. onc. on Friday and he prescribed Tessalan Pearles to supplement the inhaler and cough medicine he was already on. It seemed to work really well on Friday night and Sat. On Sun. his cough seemed to get much worse and has continued today. When I got home from work I realized he had a runny nose--that maybe it is post nasal drip. He took a pain pill and I gave him sudafed for congestion. He just took another pain pill. He can only keep from coughing if he is sitting up. It doesn't seem to be a productive cough--he isn't coughing up anything--just coughing uncontrollably. Any advice or suggestions or observations? I even had him chew gum like Ry had suggested to someone awhile back. I called and got him an appointment with the pulmonologist for Wed. afternoon. He is really miserable. Thanks for listening. Don't know what to think or do other than what we've already done. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
