As some will know i have been coughing up various types of lung tissue with various asbestos fibers stuck in it.
A dont propose to know what is going on ... But what i do know whys it hurt befour it comes out yet it did not when it got down there .... must have something to do with mucus you swallow i.e 1 and half litters to be exact
Thats why when you have lung problems you need to stay hydrated.
As you will know i have been posting replys about bronchial sepsis is not a very nice illness but like we can pic and chose.
But befoure a coughed up the crystallite asbestos fibers after my 7% hypertonic saline .. i coughed up lung scar tissue But then i coughed up a WHITE piece of what i assume to be lung scar tissue.
Under a microscope it had no vains or blood vessels but was tightly compressed and did look like lung tissue as it was full of uniform holes .. it did have fibroblast staining .
Now there is one of three things it could be (1) infection (2) Pleural Plaques (3) Asbestos Pneumoconiosis
A dont think it was a infection as i would know given my history resent xrays
So can only leave other two ... Is it possable to cough up a plaque or scaring ? Might be one for BLF team but my kidneys lynthatic systerm must be getting a hammering.
But issue is given crystalite asbestos fibers i have just coughed up give me hell .. Only reason i know its fiber as it was in my sputom red streaky colour so i got a tissue and look under my microscope And there it was long as anything and curly spring like.
Issue is my treatment making my condition worse as in are the fibers better of stuck in my lungs or moving about like thay are.
Its not like a know if its my body trying to expel them given my doc said all my anti bodies where fine .. or if its meds causing it.
All as i know its very painfull yet fibers cant ben seen on a xray ... what can you do if docs dont belive you A+E
