Gasping and lung cancer

Early last year, I noticed that I was involuntarily gasping , mostly, when I was sitting down..
It was something that never happened before, and it was happening about ten times a day. I mentioned to doctor, but they just ignored it.

Late January, this year, 2013, I was diagnosed with STAGE 3 ADVANCED ADENOCARCENOMA LUNG CANCER SPREAD INTO LYMPH GLANDS.
ive done some kemo, and 14 sets of radiation..they stopped radiation as any more would have left me with no lungs..now I'm on 1 kemo session every 3 weeks..
I've noticed that the gasping is happening more often, and stronger and louder recently..
OH! IM A 66 YR OLD LADY, WHO WAS GOING TO THE GYM UNTIL JANUARY THIS YEAR DOING TREADMILL , BODY PUMP CLASSES, AND GENERAL GYM EQUIPMENT.....SO I WAS FIT..

MY GUESS,IS THAT BECAUSE OF CANCER IN MY LUNGS, I WAS, AND AM NOT GETTING ENOUGH OXYGEN IN LUNGS, ESPECIALLY WHEN SITTING AND COMPRESSING UPPER BODY, THAT MY BODY MY BODY STARTED TO DO THE GASPING THING....ANYONE ELSE HAVE THIS EXPERIENCE?????












ANYONE HAVE SIMILAR EXPERIENCE?????:
