ASBESTOS or SCAR TISSUE coughed up V shape and various other fine fibers after hypertonic saline treatment ?

Apart from thinking there is a tree in my lungs issue is what are thay ... Befour a coughed them up .. Yep I had what felt like a lump in my neck ... And b4 you say it no its not Adam's apple :)

Anyway there of various size " hair like " one was like a V and one was like a fancy i and others have been strait ... All a light brown couler in my clear mucus i cough up from my lungs

Issue is what are thay is it ASBESTOS FIBERS as i know I was hevaly exposed to ASBESTOS or is it scar tissue

If it is scar tissue well then we have a conundrum as it could be ASBESTOS and not scar tissue as it could be ASBESTOS fiber covered in macrophages :0

Yep agree better out than in hypertonic saline is used by CF patients to help clear mucus and cut down on infection ... My lung doc said in my case not using ing it is not a option as it helps clear lungs and hope helps with bits of my lung a did not use threw bad breathing ... Think thats why some asbestos as been dislodged .. Time will tell if thats a good thing or not cheers all the best :)

I also think it would be a good idea to have these analysed. Either that or add the V and the I to your Scrabble tray? :D

Defo going to sort it ... Cheers :)

I would definitely put it into a clean container with a lid on and keep it refrigerated. Then take it in to be analysed.

Maybe ring up before you take it in.

Let us know what they say.
