Re: Coughing Up Blood in the Morning

Note: MJ smoke is just as hard on the lungs as any other type of smoke! Smoke, pollution, chemicals, etc. all cause some damage to the lungs. If you've been having pneumonia too your lungs are injured and the more you have it the mor scarring you'll have. Advanced scarring in the lungs is called Fibrosys, and you don't want that! Please take care of your lungs!
In the x-rays look at the lower lobes for pneumonia, although bronchial-pneumonia is in the upper lobes, where you'd also see bronchitis.

Please forgive the soap boxing above, but I have PF and am rather hyper about taking care of lungs now...
