Tomorrow I have to have a CT Scan with contrast of my chest. I had an x-ray of my chest last Friday which was clear but I still had a terrible hacking cough. The doctor said it was severe bronchitis but with bloody mucus, it's better to be safe than sorry. I think I'll feel better once I know what is causing the problem. If you know what the problem is, it can be treated. Not knowing is the worst! I'm fairly confident that I had bronchitis that was on the verge of turning into pneumonia and that the antibiotics intervened in time. I know this because the vicious cough immediately subsided and no more blood. The last time this happened, I had full blown pneumonia. I will feel much more at ease once I have the test. Until then, it's drink, drink, drink those fluids and taking it very easy.
