Dear Macpudd, I hope you are doing better. We certainly go through a lot - and the medical Oncs are limited in what they provide.
May God comfort you and give you and your family strength.
I have had 2 doses of Avastin now. My Onc cautioned me about using the nasal spray Affrin, as I got a messy sinus after exposure to spring pollen. I use nature as part of my healing. Sitting outside and getting sun was good. But breathing in cottonwood and other stuff ended up not good.
At night I was laying in bed coughing and needed some relief. After 10 days I am better; but Avastin and such do have multiple impacts.
