Does anyone know anything about extreme breathlessness? She can't seem to catch her breath, but is in her second round of chemo and is otherwise feeling pretty good. I mean, I realize it's lung cancer, but the breathlessness has gotten worse and worse since she started treatment.

Thanks to all.
I WONDER IF THE CHEMO IS DOING THAT, CAUSE MY MOM STARTED HER FIRST CHEMO ON WEDNESDAY AND HER COUGH GOT WORSE THE NEXT DAY AND STILL SHE IS COUGHING SO BAD AND SHORT OF BREATH TOO. MY HEART BREAKS WHEN I SPEAK TO HER CAUSE SHE SOUNDS LIKE SHE ISNT GETTING ENOUGH AIR. DOES ANYONE KNOW IF CHEMO CAN DO THIS. ANYONE WITH INFORMATION ABOUT THIS WILL BE APPRECIATED.....
