AGe 65, female, height 5 ft 7 1/4, weight 147. I have had bronchiectasis for about 20 years, and cough lots of sputum, often yellow, and several times a year green. Hi Doctor, I cannot pay anything. But I have had a scary episode - pain in my chest on the right side, and coughing up blood. I spent 5 hours in the emercency room, and the CT scan showed globules which could have been many things. My doctore said to do a sputum culture. That was on my short visit to the US. Now I am back in Rome, Italy, and the results of the culture showed pseudomonas alcaligenes and several medicines that can be effective. But I don understand Italian. I will see the doctor this afternoon, and want to know what to ask. Thank you Mary Ann PS I am a nun.
