  • At least your getting it up and it's not lying on your chest or you would be in trouble. Ring the help line on here to get advice first thing in the morning. Take care carol and try not to worry. Xx

  • THANKS STEPH, I TRY NOT TO WORRY NORMALLY I;M A POSITIVE RATIONAL PERSON BUT THIS PAST WEEK EACH DAY ITS GETTING WORSE, SO NOW I AM STARTING TO WORRY, THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT XX

  • if you are able try to sleep on your side so the mucus can move,as on your back it will make it worse or prop up with plenty of pillows,drink plenty of water,xxx

  • Please speak to a professional, you do not need fear aswell xxx

  • The site twiceshy is talking about might be Bronchiectasis R Us, specifically for bronchiectatics. Great site but not a large organisation and can sometimes be a little slow but your patience will be worth it as they are a very knowledgeable bunch.

    About how much of a hospital type sputum pot are you bringing up hun?

    love cx

  • I have times of bring up large amounts of white/clear slime this was reduced with a ompramzle and peptic liquid mainly due to Hiatus Hernia. I do get a very runny nose when eating which I think is the same problem?

    Be Well

  • I would seek professional advice asap. That way you will get much needed help. Definitely stay off dairy as it creates more mucus and water thins it. Big hug from the group x

  • Hi Carolg1, , so sorry to hear about your difficulties with the dreaded Mucus , perhaps there may be an answer IN THE MUCUS QUESTION I HAVE JUST ASKED -" === " WHERE DOES ALL THE MUCUS GO " - read my question, where I make the case that when I take a course of STEROIDS, ( 28 in total ), the production mysteriously almost CLEARS UP ALTOGETHER ! at least for a few weeks , - do you take STEROIDS ? , is it not worth trying ? - or at least making the suggestion to your Doctor, that the huge reduction of this blasted mucus CAN be greatly reduced in others by taking Steroids - you have nothing to lose and all to gain ! - Good luck - I do hope you can find an answer or at least some relief from this wretched situation ...

  • Hi Vittorio, thanks for replying strangely enough I saw my consultant last week and they have given me a course of steroids to see what happens so fingers crossed, the only down side is I don't think they are a good drug long term so I'm not too sure but anything is better than what I'm going through xx
