Hello my family have been living in Portugal for four and a half years now and I have had problems with my lungs since then caused by pneumonia. After many infections I had my right middle lobe of my lung removed in July 2013. After the operations I started bring up clear mucous that eventually changed into big blobs of yellow mucous along with lots of coughs. My specialist at the time said if the cough returns to go the pharamacy and get anti biotics! I later went for a second opinion were I was explained that I had bronchietasis and I do not need anti biotics, it is ok to cough, to bring up yellow mucous, in fact this is a livable disease. I only need to seek medical advice if I have a fever, blood or there is a change in mucous. I would really appreciate if any other sufferers could confirm that this indeed true and when you realise there is a change in your mucous because sometimes I have clear mucous with little yellow blobs and other times cough up huge all yellow blobs! sometimes I cough every five mintues and other days I do not cough for 3 hours - is this normal, many thanks for your help samantha
