  • Worrisome, need Guidance and hope

    Hi
    I was having cough,sputum and cough in June 2018, that time the weather was quite warm here,so had done with Ct Scan, sputum test and x-ray and the record was pretty OK. but still have chest pain and consistent sputum(not too much) but have no cough. My appointment is on 13th December. Now feeling quite uncomfortable, mode switch off-on, and also worrisome with respect to its recurring. Its been two years, have had inguinal orchiectomy and single BEP cycle (adjuvant chemo therapy)
    please enlighten me for further procession

    Its normal to freak out. But there is no correlation to having a cold to a relapse. Case in point, im in daytona and biketoberfest came and of course i got sick.
    You are 2 years out and the likely hood of flu symptoms associated with relapse is next to zero honestly. You would have way more other things pointing that direction than flu/cold symptoms.

        Im not a doctor or a medical professional, but if you smoke it takes awhile for you to hack all that crap up.
        It took me a solid 3 weeks to finally hack up the last of the crude from the flu. Keep in mind if you have done BEP then you lungs may have some damage and the crude will stick like glue.
        Just drink lots of water to help with getting the crude out. If after s couple of weeks its still there. Then by all means present your concerns to your primary care doc and your oncologist.
        If its viral antibiotics will not really help, just has to run its course and let your body do its thing.
