  • Hello and thank you for posting.

    I am sorry you have problems with the side effects of your lung radiotherapy treatment. Unfortunately, I do not know how long this may go on as everyone is so different. 

    Do go and see your GP and let them know this is happening. There may be medications that can help or they could refer to a respiratory physiotherapist for support. Macmillan does have information on managing breathlessness which may also be helpful.

    Take care and if you find it helpful to talk things through with one of the nurses on our helpline the number to call is Freephone 0808 800 4040. The lines are open from 9 am till 5 pm, Monday to Friday.
