Topic: Persistent Cough
My sister, who has posted to this site as "CLR" or "Cindy", has had a persistent cough for several months now. It is more than just an annoying cough and often gets her vomiting, especially at night.
She has mets to the lungs but the last CAT scan showed no change there - so that shouldn't be it. Her chemo nurse was questioning her port but the doctor doesn't seem to think it would be that. Her doctor has had her try all kinds of medications to help from allergy meds to acid reflux meds (both her oncologist and a Ear/Nose/Throat doctor)
Anyone have any experiences similar to this? Could it be her port? One thing that triggers it is tilting her head back ... but lots of things seem to trigger it. It is very tiring for her to say the least.
