Warning CF talk below could be TMI
Yesterday I was on a roll on the treadmill when all of a sudden I felt I needed to clear my airways a bit. I tried coughing and didn't get anything up but cleared what ever was in the way it sure didn't feel normal tho. So I continued my workout and then came up stairs and coughed and this time I went to grab a kleenex and yep just what you don't want to see blood. CRAP!! I started to taste that gross metal taste with each cough. So I continued to cough up until it was just streaks in the mucus. It was never straight blood so if there is a good sign when you have hemoptysis that is it. So I went back downstairs turned my O2 back on and laid down, called my CF team and left a message.
About 30 min later it was just lil dots and streaks of blood. So I figured I maybe over did the work out. When my nurse called back she thought that I could of over done it and popped a blood vessel . Coughing up blood is also a sign of infection, so I am hoping that isn't what is brewing down there. I already had a clinic appt on Mon and since it was getting better she was fine with me just coming in then unless it gets worse. So I am just taking it easy instead of doing the treadmill today it was really nice out so I took the babies for a walk. Now I am just lounging around. My lungs are a lil sore and that is why I need to invent a tank top bandaid. If I could just put a bandaid on these lungs I know they would feel better.
Please pray that there is no infection brewing and that on Mon I blow good numbers.
