LindaMRG Posted November 17, 2003 Share Posted November 17, 2003 Hello Friends, My father has started his IMRT and all was going well. He had started with this small cough right before starting the IMRT. Now it is getting worse. All docs have differing opinions, ENT said its acid reflux and gave him Nexium, oncologist said nasal drip and gave him Zyrtec, some say it could be from the weather, the cancer or the radiation. Its a dry type cough. Onc gave him codeine. Seems to be helping but now he's tired. We thought he wouldnt have side effects from this type of radiation but his rbc was slightly low so they gave him some Procrid, and he is tired. Dont know if he's tired from the codeine or the radiation. What are some of your remedies for the coughing? Now his sides hurt. He doesnt cough when he's laying flat on his back. Have any of you had this type of cough and then it got better? Have any of you had this type of radiation and got better? I need you all tonight, Im so depressed.
