Hello all! I have bronchiectasis, asthma and pseudomonas for years now. Just getting over a nasty bout of coughing up blood. This is so unsettling and terrifying! I was thinking that if I knew more about the "unknown" perhaps I could remain calmer. Have any of you had to go to ER for coughing up larger amounts of blood? What do they do for you at that time? I just think about all the cowboy movies I saw as a little girl and every time blood comes out of their mouths they die. I know it is just movies but it's like ingrained in human beings that coughing up blood is a bad situation. My heart starts to pound because I wonder if I will die. I am learning to cope with this but just trying to think it all the way through to the outcome. Like maybe it resolves itself in 99% of situations? Thank you for any input!
