cant stop coughing
« on: November 21, 2018, 10:13:24 am »
I found out I had lung cancer cause my coughing was so horrible and had to cgo to the doctors eventually. Before I started pembrolizumab I was told it would get worse before it got better. I am having some pains in my lungs and the coughing is making it hard tosleep. Does anyone have remedies to help with this?

Hi Justin, My husband had a similar experience and he althought it was uncomfortable, he slept sitting more upright than usual. Something else that helped a bit was a lemon ginger tea before bed. That not only will help with the coughing, but also may ease some nausea you are feeling. Hope that helps!
