I have been exposed to asbestos and other construction dusts for 8 hours removing fribable asbestos material with out protection. I was a labourer and was not warned or told of the work ! I currently take inhaler cause i feel a stiffening of lobes ! Will this improve ? No more stiffening of the lobes in the lung. The right lung is okay. This is 9 years after exposure. I have done cts, bronscopy for fungal lung infections in previous years no diagnosis.
I stop taking inhaler for a long time. Symbicort.astrazenca. When I say stiffing I felt the lobe near my left rid feel not flexible. And been stretched compare to others it could be scaring. I went back on inhaler cause I felt two lobes with material were blocked due to aveoili closing through inflammation
No diagnosis when I had fungal infection in lung. I had two bronscopies. Just given symibicort for dysnea. Specialist said asbestos disease in 20 or 30 years time. No abnomalities. He said come back in 20 or 30 years time
yes I done them
I was referred to specialist by local doctor. After all the tests and exams I said I have shortness of breath and he gave me that. And I now request symbicort from local doctor. She thinks it may be asthma. I just do not understand the hardening sensation I had in a lobe. When I take inhaler lung gets flexible
No always but doctors say nothing wrong. I do not wheeze but have shortness of breath, feel as though my left lung is not flexible
When I take symbicort my airways become flexible, the reason I started symbicort again is I felt them become stiff at the end. The left lung took more material than right in the exposure
Yes easier to take in a breath.
Do I need antibiotics ? A tiny bit of green came up with the white sputum
I notice I got up some thick white mucoid sputum today. When I started taking inhaler I got this white mucoid sputum. Some times I think I get up white mucoid sputum with specs of blood. what could this be ?
No for the last 8 - 9 years
I did send 3 -4 speciments before of sputum. All normal
or just a virus
since I use inhaler I notice a lot of mucus go into my stomach. I notice the mucoid thick stringy piece once a day. I also notice stringy piece before taking inhaler. I have felt a fiber go through my liver today
