Cough With Mucus In Breast Cancer Sufferers?
Hello, my mother underwent a series of treatments for chemotheraphy Ca mamae D and this is the fifth chemo. Before this fifth chemo my mother experienced a continuous cough and slimy. Just now in an X-ray with PA, Cardiomegaly concludes with aortasclerosis and there is no visible metastatic process in the lungs. What do you think this is? Please explain, what should my mother do to get her body back healthy? Is food and lack of exercise due to illness including its triggers? Thank you
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Cough accompanied by mucus in breast cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy can be caused by several factors, to get the right treatment it is necessary to know the cause of the complaint needs to be done by digging history and direct examination. Some possibilities include:
Pharyngitis Tonsilits Bronchitis Asthma Allergy Coughing that can occur can also be caused by an infection in the respiratory tract which is generally caused by a decrease in the number of white blood cells in the cancer penderitan. Based on the radiological readings you submit, cardiomegaly or enlargement of the heart in a dano with calcification of the aortic arteries does not appear to have metastases or spread of cancer cells to the lungs.
In the meantime what you can do include:
Avoiding dust, cigarette smoke, pollution Avoiding spicy, sour, oily foods Avoiding sweet foods, chocolate, fried foods, chips Avoiding too cold air Increase fluid intake Increase fiber intake such as fruits and vegetables Keep your diet healthy and nutritious Regular and regular exercise Sleep and get enough rest, 7-9 hours per day Avoiding the use of fluffy blankets and furry dolls Open the window of the house every morning so that the air circulates and sunlight comes in you to get an evaluation related to your mother's condition
So much information from me, hopefully it helps
