I really need some guidance...I am 75 yr. old female with mainly unproductive cough since I feel in mid march and broke my hip. I was in hospital for 10 days having replacement surgery and have been hospitalized 2ce since with fluid retention problems. My lung xrays are clear. Drs. say my cough is not related to my body's retaining fluid and I am not on medication which would have cough side effects. I have been been checked out by my general practiciner several times, as well as an ENT physician, with no diagnosis for cough and nothing that has helped. I have tried over the counter cough and prescription remedies; even liquior and honey. Nothing seems to help...I am coughing all the time...day and nite...Also cough been treated for allergy, and upper respiratory orgin, but have not helped. I have chronic heart disease and renal disease, but both are managed at this time. I was in a nursing home rehab for 2 months recovering from the broken hip....I have coughed for approx 4 months now and am 'give out'. Any advice?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
