Hi Carol,

Sorry to read about your husband coughing up blood ect.It would be wrong for anyone on here to tell you that if the cancer had returned or not.I know how hard the waiting till Thursday will be for you both,as you are thinking about your appointment all the time and your imagination can run riot.Tell us what happens on Thursday. Best wishes .

Hi Carol,

It will be important to let the Consultant know which antibiotics your husband has taken in the past and how long he took them for.He may arrange some tests and may also review his chest x rays.

Kind regards
