Hey friends! I finished 30 Rad treatments mid June, so I'm almost 4 months out. I have healed really well and I had a clean MRI and chest x-ray at the end of August. I've had a nagging cough for a while now...I've been trying to remember when it started but I think it's possible that I've had it since radiation. It feels like I have an itchy throat..it's not a deep cough by any means...I know that y'allcan'tdiagnose me or anything but was just wondering if anyone else deals with this too. It's junta little scarey for me b/c even though I've had those clean scans, everytime I cough I automatically have nightmares of the cancer being in my lungs. A huge part of me knows that isn't likely, but now it's always a possibility. Just needed to tell someone about my irrational fears...my husband is very supportive but he doesn't want to hear me talk about things like that and frankly I don't want to put that on him either. I knew y'all would understand!
