I am only 3 days out of tx, which went well, tumor is gone lymph nodes are back to normal. My problem is the phlegm and ropey saliva is making getting proper nutrition hard. After eating or drinking something I usually spend the next 10-15 mins. coughing up phlegm like crazy. I have tried all the typical suggestions, salt & soda, Nuetrasal, club soda, etc... nothing has really worked. My weight keeps dropping a couple pounds every week because I can't get enough calories due to the phlegm. I know eventually it will subside but the weight is getting low and I need to try to get more calories, but between the phlegm and the sore throat I don't know how to. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
