Hey everyone!
I've had asthma since early childhood, and a beautiful pattern is forming between be and the doctors on visits. Around spring-winter, i get sinusitus, this time it was neumonia/acute bonchitus. productive cough, blood. >_< Took the antibiotics, and my chest doesnt hurt so much, but i got a chest x-ray and one of my lungs (left?) is scarred (possibly a prior case on neumonia, that i didnt see the doc for is what it could be). we're going to do a follow up e=x-ray, and if anyone's interested i'll follow up on this board what happens. if you've had this happen to you, PLEASE reply, lets get this figured out. Thank you!


could the scarred lung tissue mean anything severe?

can asthma turn into a harsher breathing condition (lung cancer..)?

can asthma inhalers/nose steriods taken on regular basis (as directed) create any more adverse health effects for me in the future?
