I have been smoke free 3 weeks on Sun March 6, 2016. I ended up very breathless, wheezing, apparently with some sort of bronchial issue, I failed to get the gunk out of my lungs. I ended up in emergency, with 2 shots from the nebulizer, predisone, antibiotics and puffer and ordered to 4 day bed rest. I don't think I was really a heavy smoker at 2 packs a week. This was quite the wake up call for me, I realize and have been told that this situation is temporary and will get better . I also came to the realization that if I had not quit smoking this could be a permanent affliction. I can't imagine a life like that.
Has anyone else experienced a lung issue when they quit smoking??
