Coughing up Blood

Hi All,

I just want to let you all know how brave you all are.....and I pray for each and everyone of you.
I found out on April 5, 2012 that I have stage3 non-operable lung cancer. I've had 28 radiations and 6 chemos. I'm lucky enough not to be bothered too much by side effects except for being weak and tired but.....after the last three chemos, I have been coughing up large amounts of blood. I've landed in the hospital for it, but this morning when the bleeding started, I just let it go....didn't want to go back in. It stopped after a while but I was just wondering if anyone else had this problem.
Thank you in advance.

I have not had that problem but maybe someone over at inspire.com has. Hoped someone here would answer today but I guess that is not common. So glad for you that you have not had too rough of a time with tx. Sounds like your doc went in really aggressive to effect a cure! Looking forward to hearing from you again.
