I was diagnosed with ABPA five weeks ago. I already have severe bronchiectasis & asthma - but the asthma is usually well controlled. The chest specialist said they wanted to start me on anti-fungals & steroids but would not do so until the reason for my poor liver blood tests were discovered. I have finally had an MRI scan (for liver & biliary/pancreatic ducts) and am now waiting for the results to come through....... To get to the point, although I am feeling well at the moment, I am coughing up phlegm which looks different to what I used to get with chest infections. I am coughing up mostly light coloured gelatinous phlegm but in the middle there appear to be small green strings. Or sometimes, the worm like strings are khaki brown. Is this normal for ABPA? I had a bronchoscopy in August which found no abnormality and had negative wash results. However my blood tests showed very high Aspergillus markers. Is this type of phlegm familiar to other ABPA or CPA sufferers?
