COPD? Sounds like your cancer is cured, congratulations, you are one of few! you probably smoked and this lingering bronchitis may be uncontrolled copd. Check with your doctor for bronchodilators +/- steroids. Radiation pneumonitis would be very unusual after all this time.
First of all. Congratulations on your survival and i know you stopped smoking. If teh simple imaging of cxr and ct are negative, and you still cough, i would get pft's, including abg and dlco. I'd see a pulmonary doctor and make sure a bronchoscopy was not indicated or a pet scan. Highly unlikely to be related to your old disease or treatment.
Good news. It sounds as if you have a bronchitis. Because it has lasted this long. You should see your doctor.
