I have what is normally well controlled mild COPD (Symbicort optional Ventolin I have had three lots of heart surgery to valves and am awaiting a fourth. I have chest infection for which Doc prescribed 7 day course of Amoxycilln and 5day course of prednisilone. The infection is clearing but I am producing so much mucus I'm nearly drowning. I should have my pre-op assessment for heart surgery on Monday, so I'm devastated as it looks like I shall have to put it off.
Can anyone offer suggestions about dealing with over production of mucus. I've never had this happen before.I feel quite desperate and I'm normally quite calm
