Yes thank you belinda...dropped back off picturing our lovely cyber Xmas room with the fragrant pine and faux fur throws 😊 In fact i seem to be sleeping on and off all day most days lately.Is this normal on docetaxol? My next one is due day after boxing day and yet dont feel like I've recovered from last lot yet! This chest infection doesnt help either. Love and hugz xxxx
Just woke up and difficult to get back off to sleep! But yes the antibiotics are working well and cough subsided a lot. Still hardly any voice tho...but doc did say that was viral and would just take its course. But hey...hopefully I'll be feeling well again just in time for next chemo on 27th ...huh!!! I'm a bit worried about the breathlessness too...this seems to be getting worse each week. Does it ever improve? Love and hugz to everyone on this early 4am morning! xxxxx
Hi Bev, just mentioning about the coughing, rather than the mucus bit! I didn't get an infection with the cold I've just got over but lost my voice for over a week, mainly caused by the awful coughing. My throat was so raw and I got laryngitis. I'm still a bit croaky 4 weeks after starting the cold so I'm not surprised you are feeling the same when you know you do actually have an infection. Hope the antibiotics work well and you don't feel the side effects of those! Always bloomin' side effects. Nicky x
Yes bc-lass... I'm doing the same with this chest infection. So sure thats whats causing it. Still can't speak since Saturday! Still coughing an awful lot and finding during some coughing fits i just can't draw in any air to breathe ..its frightening! I just make yhis gasping noise. Hope it won't last much longer. Hope everyone else is ok this week. Roll on Spring!! Love bev xxxx
That's when I last had chemo too, it might be connected to you just getting over your infection but mine is always worse in the morning as well. Especially since my last chemo, Doxorubicin, before that, Capecitabine. X
Hi - had chest infection about mth ago but for the ladt week have had a lotbof bloody mucus coming out when i blow my nose. Do you think this is the end of the infection. Seeing ENT tomorrow as voice still a bit hoarse.
