Back in may my husband was hospitalized for shortness of breath--he could not walk 2 feet without being very short of breath-. Just to give you some history, he has breast cancer with mets to the bones. We also discovered that he had some nodules in his lungs and a cancerous nodule pressing against his trachea.He had a lot of fluid build up in lungs--pleural effusion. While my husband was in the hospital his dr told me that my husband was dodging bullits basically. He was so sick that he could not walk.
Also they put him in there to bring his pain under control So he left with dilaudid, percocet, and fentanyl. When he got out,we went to the dr and our onc told us that my husband cancer was slow growing.
They changed his med to Halaven- he seem to got better for 5 or six month. Now I am seein that he hurts when he coughs. His coughs are like "incomplete" for lack of word to express. He is starting to ache a lot, just before he went to the hospital. He seems to have a lot of nasal issues. The last appointment with onc was some wheezing. I guess I want to know is this commom in patients with lung issues? We haven't had a scan in about 5 months. Currently on halaven and avastin. thanks
