      For the last 2 months of chemo I had prolonged coughing. I had two or three hard to control bouts of coughing each day along with frequent daily coughing. I would cough each night and morning. It eventually resolved after chemo.

      No, I haven't had this... Could be meds have spiked up an allergy of some kind. I USE to have a constant cough decades ago. ONE thing I did was try to drink water when the urge comes to cough. Coughing racks up your throat. So then your body creates drainage, and then the drainage makes you cough... A nice circle.

      But I do agree with others, see your doctor.

      Just wondering if you figured out why you are coughing and if it ever went away. I too am experiencing a tickle and then slight coughing that won't go away. I have been on Tamoxifen for 6 months and have quit taking it for a week to see if that might be causing it. I went through chemo a year ago, then I had a double mastectomy followed by radiation. I would appreciate any information.

    After the third chemo, I'm lost my long and black hair. I cried when it fell to the floor and some were attached to the comb. I felt very scared and very feel less confident. Hair is the crown of a woman. This experience is very painful ... but now my hair has recovered. God replace with the hair still black, soft, and longer ... every event have the good thing and need our patience.
