Just thought I would ask about this on here. A week or so ago I had a dry cough, generally after waking which made my throat quite sore. Once I was up and about my normal phlegmy cough came back. Maybe had this a couple or three days. When I coughed up phlegm on one of those days got a fleck of blood in my sputum. It was just one fleck and I put it down to the dry sore cough which made my throat sore. It never happened again until I woke early this morning. Had the dry cough again but not quite so sore this time. For once my phlegm was a brownish colour and then another lot had a blood fleck in it again. Is this the aspergillosis or again just the dry cough causing it? Funny I had been to my Doc yesterday and was given a sputum pot as I told her i had finished my antibiotics last Wednesday and the phlegm was again, as usual starting to colour up and my peak flow was falling. As I have my appointment at UHSM on Friday didn't want to go on any more antibiotics for the time being. She suggested we do a sputum test to see exactly what was happening after the antibiotics so will be taking that into the lab today when i go to my Breathe Easy Meeting. They are hoping the result will be back in time for me to take it to Manchester - or telephone for the results or get them to fax it to Manchester. This Doc in my GP surgery was really good. Shame I had chosen the head of the surgery as my main Doc, he is a bit of a plonker! Since choosing him I have seen two good Docs I had rarely seen before so had forgotten about them.
