Takes time. You had inflammation in the lungs due to infection which is resolving. It takes time for the tissues to heal completely and repair the damage. If you continue improving, that is good.

Hav shortness of breath, small amt. Blood in mucus phlegm no cough at all. Did xray blood test. Doc says no TB cancer. Mayb smoking. I jus quit. Help!?
