Chest, back pain on swallowing COCODAMOL tablets.

Resolved Question:

I took a couple of cocodamol tablets a couple of hours ago.. When I swallowed the first one it made my chest and back hurt for a few seconds like as though I had taken in air at the same time as swallowing.. The second tablet went down fine.. Is it possible that the first one went into my lungs?

Thank you for your query at
Rhabdomyosarcoma ( RMS) needs chemotherapy in relapsed status. Can you mention what drugs were used in first line chemo?
A second line regimen of chemotherapy may be useful for prolonging survival. Palliative drugs can also be used to minimize symptoms.
Please let me know if I can be of further help.

Patient replied :

Hello Sir,
Thanks for your prompt response.
She was given VAC and IE alternately during the first course of chmeotherapy. But currently doctor told like, further treatment cannot proceeded and that we needs to move on for palliative care.

Yes i agree with your doctor.
Unfortunately the disease is extensive and palliative care is the most feasible option.
All the best!

Patient replied :

Hello Sir, Is there no option to have a surgery to remove the primary tumor and then giving radiation therapy to the others. Its just a optimistic question from my end.
Thanks Girish

This would be difficult for me to answer as treatment depends on many factors. RMS needs chemotherapy. Please follow doctor's advice.
