Anyone with colon cancer that has metastasized to the lungs?

Posted by heathe26 @heathe26, Aug 13 4:25am

My mother has colon cancer that has metastasized to her lungs. She has a terrible congested cough. Is there a way to help that? She’s also taking Braftovi orally and having infusions every other week. I feel like more could be being done for her. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Colorectal Cancer group.

Welcome @heathe26. You must be worried about your mom. I'm tagging fellow members @tplante1970 @wifemom3 @christih2 @opheli who have experience either personally or of a loved one who has colon cancer that metastacized to the lungs. They may be able offer experiences and tips about dealing with congested cough.

You might also appreciate connecting with other stage 4 colorectal cancer members in this discussion:

Heather, is your mom in the care of a palliative care team?
