My mom has extensive stage, SCLC and has had 2 rounds of Chemo so far. Twice now she has experienced a dangerously low blood sodium that has put her in the hospital. I understand what's causing it and why, but does anyone have advice on how to treat this? They put her on salt pills (alone they don't help) so they also put her on an antibiotic that has a side effect of raising her salt. She tries to eat salty food but doesn't have much of an appetite....Especially after Chemo. Anyone else have this problem? It's scarey...it can put you in a coma or cause death!
