Bronchitis In One Lung
Deoxygenated blood enters the lungs from the right side of the heart and travels to the lungs. When you inspire, oxygen flows into the lungs, transverses the capilliares and attaches to hemoglobin down a gradient. At the same time, co2 diffuses into the capilaries and is expelled with exhalation. Oxygen rich blood then flows to the left side of the heart and into the ...Read more

For 2 1/2 weeks had sinusitis and bronchitis. Finished z pack. Saw pcp wed and was told my lungs were clear. Still bringing up mucous, though clear. Today chest feels tight and I have mild pain in heart area when taking deep breath. I do have mild asthma.
Hard to say: If wheezing and short of breath - maybe, but you should be seen by your doctor for another evaluation asap.

How long does it take for this crackling in my lungs from bronchitis to go away. Feeling totally fine except I sound like a cat purring constantly.
Can take weeks: I am sorry to hear about the bronchitis. This excess phlegm is just the after effects of the inflammatory process and can take a couple (sometime 3-4 weeks) weeks to resolve. You could try guaifenesin 300 mg by mouth and you can take this every 4 hours if needed. This will help break up the mucus/phlegm. Just make sure you are not pregnant while taking this. Guaifenesin is also called Mucinex ...Read more
