Hello.

Has anyone else on the forum had a lobectomy for TNBC metastasis to the lungs, and had the onset of Asthma soon after the lobectomy?

This has been my experience and I'm now having difficulty getting the Asthma under control. My pulmonologist is now concerned that the lack of response to the asthma meds may indicate more cancer or an infection. Possibly a new CT is needed. My oncologist doesn't want to do a CT until after I finish Cycle IV of my chemotherapy which will be the first month of Sept.

Thanks for your input.
Nancy


(Dx Triple Negative BC May, 2015 at stage 3 in R breast. Treated w/CT and AC, double mastectomy, radiation. Chemo reduced Stage 3 to Stage 1. Finished these treatments Feb 2016.
Pneumonitis caused by radiation tx diagnosed June 2016 and treated. Follow-up CT scans of lungs discovered a nodule in right upper lung, April 2017. Needle biopsy done and diagnosed as cancer, complication w/pneumothorax (collapsed lung). Mediastinoscopy to check central lung lymph nodes which were clear. PET showed 3 nodules (have to look up the size).
Underwent right upper lung lobectomy May 2017 with pathology diagnosis of metastatic triple negative breast cancer and 3 nodules removed with clear margins. PET also showed very small questionable spot on left upper lung, but will have to just keep an eye on it and see if it turns into anything.)

Hi 
I haven't had the problem of asthma from my lobectomy. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Positive thoughts flowing your way.
