Glad to hear you are being carefully followed. When my daughter got TB (nurse in county jail) her clear mucus continued for nearly a year after the original colored phlegm cleared. I have constant clear mucus after 1.5 years of treatment for NTM – pulmonology nurse says it may be with me "for a long time" – and that clearing it is key to staying healthy – TB and NTM love to grow in it if it thickens and stays in the lung.

I see. I think then I should become accustomed to it and just not worry because I have no other symptoms. Thank you so much @sueinmn for providing valuable information. It feels good to have support during such a depressive disease.
