Hi ladies! In September, I started Taxol/Avastin and it is working wonders on my cancer. My tumor markers have dropped from 1300 to 83 and my scans have showed dramatic improvement!
While I am thrilled with the success of chemo, I do have one very big complaint. I have the worst chemo cough ever! It is a dry cough and it rears it's ugly head at night. During the day, I rarely cough. But at night, it is so bad it keeps me and my husband up.
We have tried everything: humidifier, vaporizer, sleeping pills, prescription cough medicine, vicks, keeping water by the bed, sleeping with a cough drop in my mouth.... Nothing is working. We are starting to go crazy.........does anyone have any suggestions for me?
I have mentioned it many times to be doctor and we have tried anti-biotics too. Again, no luck.
So if you know of any tricks that can help me out, me and my husband would be game to try anything!
