built up mucus damaged lungs
Last updated: September 2022
I have been in out of hospital in the last two weeks with being sent home with antibiotics and prednisone was not getting better. Waking up, going to sleep, just coughing and coughing nonstop mucus to where i could not breathe.
Getting some answers
After being in hospital 6 days come home, next day 911 back I know something was not right and as not leaving till I got results so got a ct scan and the doc comes and actually sat down showed me my scan lungs and said my lungs on the bottom damaged and mucus in them damaged lungs that’s been there for a while and just kept building up. So he tells me about surgery removing damaged lungs and getting that mucus out. I’m gonna do this or else mucus will kill me. Has anyone heard of this that I’m going through?
Do you feel comfortable asking your doctor questions about your COPD?
