Pattym Posted March 16, 2008 Share Posted March 16, 2008 I am new to this site and have been searching through the posts for help with my mother's new problem. Background: She was diagnosed 9/30/07 with nsc lung cancer due to a brain tumor. The brain tumor was surgically removed. They informed us that there was a mass on her lung and on her adrenal gland. They have never given us a stage. She went through radiation for the brain tumors that were there after surgery and received a good bill of health on her head and doesn't need another MRI until August. She started chemo in Nov of 07 and had just finished her 6 cycles. The scan showed some shrinkage but the Dr. has advised her to do 2 to 3 more cycles then another scan. (she has been handling the chemo relatively well with little naseau and only one transfusion). She is 77 and in very good spirits. Now to my question. My father called me today that since her chemo on Fri. she has had three coughing spells that have brought up something very hard. He describes it as hard like macaroni and says it seems to have tissue in it. Does anyone have any idea what this is. She feels like it is coming from lower and not from her sinus.
