Hiccups with esophageal cancer

Posted by sunray @sunray, Jan 29, 2023

My husband's tumor is at the esophageal/stomach junction. He had his first chemo and radiation treatments lat Thurs. He woke up with hiccups at 2 AM on Friday and has had them almost constantly since. It is now Sunday night. If he lays down they stop after a few mins but start again if he gets up. Has anyone else experienced this? He has radiation tomorrow and will check with the dr regarding this.

Think I also took baclofen, before my treatments, to head off my hiccups at the pass! I had a few 6 hour bouts of hiccups back in the day... NASTY! They really beat you up.
