User :   thanks i have had bronchitus for aproximately three weeks now i thought it was over wheezing had stopped , but i have bad sinus problem, a few times when i woke up on my first cough with a bit of light yellow mucous there were traces of blood in it ? should i be worried i dont smoke quit 9 years ago.its only a tiny bit and it doesnt keep going just for a minute now plegm clear again
Doctor :   Hi,
Doctor :   Please give me some time to read out your post
Doctor :   Need not worry if the blood in sputum is scarce
User :   its only a little and only the first cough really
Doctor :   if blood in sputum continues or aggravates then its a must for you to get sputum test done
User :   how come it seems to reinfect sometimes when i sleep, my plegm was clear lastnight then this morning i needed to cough a little and light yellow
Doctor :   That might probably be due to tear in mucous membrane due to coughing
User :   i have sputum in a container should i take it to my doctor
Doctor :   Its not reinfection
User :   im not coughing much anymore though
Doctor :   in standing position the sputum tends to pool into the lower parts of the lung
Doctor :   which when on lying down comes to the main airways which triggers the early morning cough and phlegm
User :   oh ok, how come i can cough violently during the day, and no trace of blood only first thing in morning when i first cough
Doctor :   Thats because the mucous membranes gets congested with blood during the night
User :   oh ok , should i see my DOctor still, i dont want to waste her time
User :   if its only a trace
User :   i dont have temp or anything
Doctor :   wait for some more days if it progresses then go for a sputum test
User :   ok no worries it did it a week ago just once when i was coughing, first thing in morning but i havent seen it since. thats why i ask, thanks for your advice anyway..much appreciated
User :   until now
Doctor :   Is there anything i can help you with?
User :   no thats ok thank you very much
User :   have a nice dayx
