I am still having some problems with hacking up mucus with blood in it. My PET scan a few weeks ago did not show anything like cancer the lungs, but did show 4 areas that the doctor believes to be from aspiration. Every time I eat or drink something a little of it goes into the lungs and I start hacking until I get it up and then the lungs hurt right in the middle of the chest.
Has anyone had problems with Aspiration if so what did you do and what do you think is my next step? I have another PET schedule in December just to keep tabs on it for now, just don’t want it to get worse and turn into cancer.
