Yes, runny nose and post nasal drip.  So glad to hear I'm not the only one.  I've never heard anyone else mention it and I've told the Dr about it but she never says anything like "That's common or not common or expected or because of..." etc.

I was told part of the reason this happens is because when you lose your hair, you lose it everywhere...including your nose.  So it has a clear path, so to speak.  That was from my first Oncologist, however, and I'm not sure I trust him to know his own name anymore.

Come to think of it, I had a runny nose while on chemo. In fact it would just start running and I'd be scared that it was a nose bleed, but thankfully it wasn't. Embarrassing when you're eating dinner and your nose starts running. Strange side affect.

Yes had nasal drip with both my chemo regimes, And thankfully stopped after some hair grew back. Also my eyes used to water with every change of atmosphere ie room to room, indoor to outdoor etc again it stopped a few months after treatment.
