Has anyone experienced an allergy-like chest conjestion after chemo? Since going off the chemo, I've developed a late-in-the-day onset conjestion, for which I have been taking Clariton..any similar experiences out there? Bud

    Hi Bud, my hubby has a cough/conjestion also after chemo. Since he is still smoking (I'm trying to get him to quit), this may be the cause. It does get worse after chemo though. Hope this helps.

    Hi Bud. I get congestion for a day or so after my treatment. The cough I seem to hold on to all the time. Very annoying. ( Especially when I'm trying to get my mind off my constant throat feeling)

    I am on my 3rd of 12 treatments.

    Feel better, Bud.
