My husband was diagnosed with inoperable non small cell lung cancer 7 months ago. He completed 7 weeks of radiation, which did shrink the tumor. His main discomfort now is the congestion. His oncologist said that the congestion is an after effect of the radiation, and he has seen it continue for up to a year in some patients. He is on Prednisone and Leviquin. He was up to 60 mg of prednisone, but is now weaned down to 30 mg. He relies on his Nebulizer about 6 times per day. His prognosis is poor, but I gain so much hope by reading all of the posts on here. I would like to hear from any of you that have had problems with congestion. Thank you....
