Re: My 11 year old has been wheezing for a month - HELP!

Has anyone done a X-Ray on his lungs? He could have pneumonia. Try getting him to lay head down on the couch with his legs up, in other words, his head will be towards the floor. Once in this position, pat him rather hard on the back, but not so hard as to hurt him, but you want to get all that mucous moving and if you pat him on the back, it can move the mucous and make him cough it up. I had to do this when my son was 4, he had asthma, pneumonia, and a collapsed lung. Good luck..
