I was diagnosed with Bronchiectasis last year and was given Azithromyacin which cleared up the infection in my lungs. However I am still spitting up Mucus that looks clear but anyway I asked my Doctor that if I was in a public place or anywhere where there was a lot of people about '' What would the Mucus do to my lungs and body if I swallowed it '' and My Doctor said ''Nothing as it would be passed through my body into the Toilet ''. So is this True or should I be worried about swallowing Mucus to avoid embarrassment in a Public place !!! Kind Regards Ron Tibbetts.
