I had it a year ago, really bad. A lung xray afterwords showed no more fluid in my lungs but I still cough some stuff up...no all the way up to my mouth but I can feel some loose stuff way down in my lungs that moves when I cough at times. No where like it was before of course. But will this ever go away? Breathing is just a tad "off" too.

Maybe you can ask your doctor for a pulmonary function test, it may show more reason why. Also, maybe it is something like a lingering bronchitis from the pneumonia. Not sure....what has your doctor said and done?

I'm going to smile like nothing is wrong, act like everything is perfect, and pretend its not hurting me.

I had that test done before, though it was before I had the pneumonia. When I told him, he just said, 'well the xray showed that you were ok". So what, this phlegm is coming from space? I know I'm coughing up stuff; it must be from my lungs. It's not my throat. But like I said, it's not that much. I just don't want it to turn into something more...
