Hi Ellen – I have not coughed up blood since my pneumonia was at its worst, but there are some here who do. My doc's guidance was "2 tsp or less, let it be. Continuous or copious, call me." You may want to call/email/text your own doc for advice.
As for chest tightness, do you have a "rescue inhaler" like albuterol? When my chest feel tight, I use it 20-30 minutes before airway clearance. It eases the tight feeling and opens airways so stuff comes up better.Again, ask your docs…

Thank you, Sue. Yesterday I had about a Tbs. But my sputum has been white for about 2 months…..Anyone else cough up blood occasionally?
I can't do Albuterol because it gives me rapid heartbeat.
I do text my Pulmonologist.
This site is so helpful tho. It adds to the knowledge I need to navigate thru MAC and Bronchiectasis.
Thank you all, Ellen
