Hope everyone is doing as well as can be expected. I know so many are waiting on biopsies and to start treatment or to finish treatment or to simply start feeling well again so I feel a little silly addressing what may be nothing.
I have a question, which is also a concern. I am 12 weeks from rads, 14 weeks from Erbitux for stageIV laryngeal SCC with a couple of nodes "lighting up" as my onc says. For the most part I feel pretty good. Eating what I can, although gaining nothing :-(
I remember coughing a lot and choking on that terrible thick ropey mucus towards the end of treatment and for a few or more weeks after. That all got better but now for the last week or more I have this crazy dry cough. Mostly at night when I'm trying to sleep. But it does happen in the daytime too. First I thought it was from the ceiling fan, it's been really humid and hot here in southern California. Now I wonder if it's more serious......lungs?
I get my PET/CT on the 24th and my pretreatment scans were clear as far as my lungs go.
Does anyone out there have any idea about this? I don't feel like I have a cold or anything like that.
Gosh the 24th seems so far away, but we've all played that waiting game right?!
Ok any info would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance :-)
