Has anyone experienced coughing (w/o phlegm), itchy throat and changed voice (husky) after chemo? What is your advise about it?

    I had a few colds throughout the 3 months but a few weeks after my last treatment I completely lost my voice! Worst case of laryngitis...but no other cold symptoms. It was strange but I heard it was common so I just let it run its course.

    yes, i have been experiencing this. The week after my chemo i had a sore throat, hoarseness, runny nose and cough. Actually, i am still coughing. I am on Taxotere, Carboplatin, and Herceptin. I just called the oncologist to see about something to do for this cough. I have coughed so hard i think i injured my right lung. i also have allergies and asthma which makes things even more complicated.
