HI mailsreena.

THANKS FOR YOUR QUESTION.

YOUR RESULT ONLY SHOW YOU HAVE ANAEMIA (REDUCED HB%).BUT OTHER TEST RESULT DIDNOT SHOW ANY GROSS ABNORMALITY.BUT YOU HAVE HAEMOPTYSIS SO PLEASE DO A CHEST XRAY AND SPUTUM FOR AFB AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE TO EXCLUDE TUBERCULOSIS THE COMMONEST CAUSES OF HAEMOPTYSIS AND ATTEND A PULMONOLOGIST WITH REPORTS.I AM SURE HE WILL GUIDE YOU AND IF YOUR SPUTUM AND CHEST XRAY ARE NORMAL THEN YOU MAY HAVE TO DO A CT SCAN OF CHEST AND A BRONCOSCOPY TO REACH THE CORRECT DIAGNOSIS.

BEST WISHES.
