My Husband (39yrs old) has been struggling to remove phlegm for over a year. Recently he has been choking at times and often has to pull it from the back of his throat. Its now very thick and sticky and green in colour. After alot of nagging I eventually got him to see a doctor last week. He was sent for a chest x-ray and apparently its come back showing emphysema. He was never a heavy smoker when he did smoke, he's been off them for 10yr now apart from the occasional weekend when he goes out. He was booked in for a lung function test and all is normal - lungs of a 25yr old he was told. Now he is to be referred to a specialist for further investigations. Does this story seem similar to anyone on the forum? I'm going out my mind with worry & felt as thought out GP was holding something back. Does this sound right to you? I really would appreciate any comments/advice left. Don't be scared to say what you really think though.
