Runny Nose Post Chemo

Ever since ending chemo for breast cancer 2 years ago, I have been bothered by a runny nose. I'm not sick, and have no allergies to speak of. It's hardly life threatening, but it's a nuisance. I've never heard of this as a side effect, but the timing makes me think it's likely. Has anyone else experienced this?

Answer

Debbie, are you sure that you haven't developed allergies? I didn't have allergies before chemo, but I have developed them since treatment. I agree that the timing does suggest that this is a chemo-related side effect and that you should check with a general practice doctor or ENT for possible solutions.
