I know this sounds rather flaky! But has anyone perfected the technique of effectively coughing out mucus without too much pain/discomfort?
I managed to get a blob of thick green mucus the size of an avocado stone out last night. But nearly coughed my insides out. I would leave it inside if I could but it's impeding my swallowing as it is making me gag and sometimes vomit.
I'm left with 2 of 33 rads and finished 3 of 6 chemo treatments (finished 3 of 3 chemos concurrent with rads). Everything (moving my tongue, spitting, swallowing) hurts like hell now.
