My husband is currently going through chemo and radiation for stage3n0 EC.
He has a severe cough that is keeping him awake and makes him gag, compromising his food intake even more.
They tested him for whopping cough, gave him a check x Ray (thank God clear) and put him on a week of antibiotics. Now they are saying it is probably from the radiation concentration on his tumor. Has anyone else experience this and if so was there anything that helped or how long did it last.
I know everyone is different but I am so concerned about the weight loss and his comfort. He is not a big guy and after the surgery I am sure will lose even more. Dr.s don't seem too concerned about it.
