Shari C Posted March 13, 2022 Share Posted March 13, 2022 Hi everyone. My name is Shari and my father was diagnosed with stage 3c NSCLC adenocarcinoma in Sept 2021. He completed his treatment plan in December of 2 chemo drugs plus radiation (proton therapy) and does not show any cancer cells at the moment. He’s undergoing immunotherapy now, but his symptoms are not getting better. He has a really bad chronic cough, pleural effusion (had to be drained a few times in a month), and trouble swallowing. He also has really bad pain when coughing, or taking a deep breath. He has pain meds but they only do so much. Looking for anyone that may have gone through similar symptoms - what procedures did you undergo or what tips do you have to get rid of these or will he have to live with these for the rest of his life? Nice to meet all of you and I look forward to reading your stories! I love that we have this forum to help us all navigate these difficult times.
