Hi many of you will have seen my posts on my de mukeing saga whereas just can't seem to lessen it , I have pints of the stuff on a daily basis, when I'm ready to expel it I feel so uncomfortable and quite breathless, last week had an X-ray consultant said didn't appear to be much mucus showing in my lung, when I get that horrid tight feeling in my back and round my midriff I have to get the stuff out but it's so often it's ruling my life and wearing me out, my question is if I didn't expel it would I choke or what would happen , I Darby plan to go anywhere because of it, any advice please x
Stupid question re mucus: Hi many of... - British Lung Foun...
there is an opp now that kills the nerve that produces mucus and the same nerve is also responsible for contracting the air ways. there are 4 hospital in London doing it and others over the country. People who have this opp say its like a new life, they can breath again walk again and come off oxe . Worth a talk with your doctor. good luck
Hi tom, wow thanks for that I will have a look at your posts to see if I can read up a bit on it but I would certainly be interested in that if it were poss I've tried everything else, I do luv singing but my family don't haha but I think they would rather hear me sing than struggle on , thanks X carol
I tried up till 11 30 last night and I couldn't find it I did send the address to someone on Healthunlocked but can't remember who
sorry, what it is they put the thing down your throat but instead of looking in the stomach they go down into the lung and kill the nerve that makes mucus and also makes the airways narrower regards Tom
Ah! I understand. Mine is worse in the mornings and the daily cry is 'Where on earth is it all coming from?' My poor husband cannot get over the quantity I shift when he helps me with postural drainage. I usually find that the morning 'slap' leaves me reasonably clear until the evening, but when I have and infection it's present all day.
I've got my acapella now so am hoping it might reduce the need for my husband to assist.
