wondermom Posted October 19, 2008 Share Posted October 19, 2008 My dad has been coughing for 2 months now. My sister and brother also had bad coughs that started about the same time but theirs went away after about 3 weeks. He went to the doctor (the same one who treated my mom for pneumonia for 2 months before sending her somewhere else) and he said he had bronchitis and put him on antibiotics. That didn't do anything. Last week he called the doctor again and he was put on steroids to see if that would help. Well, it has been a week and no improvement. I am kind of freaking out here. What would be the odds that both of my parents (who don't smoke) would have lung cancer. I am trying not to go there but it is just so familiar. This is the same time of year my mom started having trouble. The same doctor who for some reason doesn't feel x-rays are necessary in these situations. I told my dad to insist on an x-ray but I can't make him. I am just so depressed today thinking about this. I dread calling dad to ask him how he is doing. I just have this horrible feeling inside that something isn't right but maybe it is just because of everything we went through with Mom. Maybe I am just overthinking everything. I just wish he would get better! I am driving my husband crazy with all my worrying. This just can't happen again. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
