Welcome, @jt54. Nice way to enter the group with a helpful post for @phyllisg and her husband. JT, are you finished treatment now? When did the horrible coughing end?

Phyllis, how is your husband doing? Has he tried Mucinex?

Hi Colleen,

Thank you for the welcome.

I finished treatment in February of 2023. I still battle significant issues with soft tissue in my throat swelling egregiously. This swelling leans on my airway ( hospitalized me twice/admitted) and also greatly intensifies my swallowing difficulties. I also get Lymphedema, but that has lessoned the real and primary issue is the soft tissue swelling. Wildly unpredictable and can incapacite me. I dont get enough breath, exhaustion is right behind...So we go! I am currently doing Hyperbaric Therapy ( HBO) for 2 hours a day , five days a week with fingers crossed.
I have had 21 sessions thus far. I do have on major improvement. This is that I no longer have to have water , tea, yogurt, sugar free juice every minute or two. This is a true blessing as I was drinking over 200 ounces of water a day. Spend your life in the restroom! I am hopeful other improvements will follow.

Thank you
