I'm new to this forum (so please be patient).

 It has been 7 months since I completed all my treatment for Breast Cancer, which consisted of Chemo and radiation. I am now on tamoxifen. This was my second time round , 1st occured 13 years ago when I was 30 yrs old.

After  I completed my radiation I had a very bad sinus infection and then throat infection which lasted for 6 weeks with countless scripts of antibiotics. Since that time I have had a recurring tightness in my throat and chest that seems to present itself when I am tired.My throat doesn't feel sore as such more hoarse , as though I have been screaming for hours and  I also become very fatigued.

I know that everyone is different and has different reactions but I was wondering if anyone else had experienced cold/flu like symptoms on an ongoing basis after their treatment.

Would love to hear of any similar stories or advice.
