Is it the bubble pep you are talking about sweet

I doubt very much your GP will have even heard of it ;-) It's an easy method for kids but fun for us too. Glad it is helping you get up the gunk. You could ask your GP for a prescription for the Flutter - you may find that helpful too.

love cx


Ah so! you've been blowing bubbles to help with the mucus! that's a good idea, it also helps to thin out the mucus if you could drink more fluids. Also there's a good way of clearing your chest using the 'huff' method, I had a link but can't find it now! If you go to Pulmonary Rehab they give you lots of information about clearing your chest, your doctor can refer you for a course. Have a great day, huff xxx
