Re: will i ever stop coughing !!

Hiya. Yes last winter was certainly a bad one. As such a lot of people had some very nasty bugs and my farther like you had a cough that didnt or wouldnt go. He is ok now, but it took a while.
If your coughing up phelm then your doctor needs to look at this further. Somtimes phelm production is about clearing the lungs out for the better, in other cases it can be somthing that needs further investigations. A Spirometry test would be a good start ( if you have smoked, then certainly its a must ) and im hoping you have had an chest X-ray?
I would certainly go back to the doctors and get the above tests and more so if your phelm has yellow or green in colour.
Also, dont forget you can get the flu jab, and if you have any kind of weak chest its a must nowdays.
Sorry i cant speculate more, but really testing to rule anything out is the way forward.
