    bloody nose

    I have a question about BC. My stepmother had surgery in Feb, right breast removed. Started Chemo then Radiation. They have since stopped both Chemo and radiation as they said it was not really working. I just talked to her and she has pneumonia and a bloody nose. I understand the pneumonia as she is a smoker and has not really been out of bed for like 2 months (she is in hospice). What causes the bloody nose? Thank you for your help and god bless those of you going through this.

    Re: bloody nose

    I'm really sorry to hear about your step-mother. I'm even more sorry to hear that the chemo & radiation aren't working.

    During and after chemo and radiation, the bodies immune system can be pretty worn out. Different things can be effected by that, such as the blood not being able to clot very well sometimes.

    These are questions you might want to ask either her dr. or even your own dr. could probably give you a better answer. I wouldn't want to give you any info on something like that when i'm not sure of it.

    Again, I just wanted to say i'm sorry to hear how sick she is and I hope she feels better soon.
