Chain smoker. Blood in saliva, loss of appetite, lost weight. Tried electronic cigarette. Done X ray, normal. Next step? - Online Doctor Chats
How are you doing?
i am doing good
this chat is for my dad
i would be great if u clarify my doubt
My Dad is a chain smoker and recently he had some blood stains in his saliva while coughing
he went for a treatment and doctor said it was nothing but due to cough
How old is your dad?
after taking all xrays and he gave some Medications too
The Xray was normal?
everyhthing was normal
since he was taking the medicine we din want him to take any alternative measures to stop smoking
Has he been losing any weight or is there any loss of appetite?
but now he has started to smoke vigorously
he s always thin
but now we want to give him some thing which can stop his smoke
Any other symptoms that I have been missing?
I would need to speak with your dad for that
We'll start him on a plan
He needs to be convinced first
do u have any idea regarding this?
he s ready for the treatment also
we hav convinced him
But I would need to speak with him for it
will this produce any side effects
No I dont think so\
any precautions to be taken?
But its not a sure shot way of quitting cigarettes
Its not a way I would recommend as a physician
the first thing is that you fix a date for quitting
shud i come for a consulting along with him
I am sorry I dont consult in person
But I can discuss it with you here
Should we start?

do u want my dad along with me
That would be great
