  • What color sputum?Been coughing awhile, more than a year. Moderate to heavy smoker more than 25 years.I cough green balls of clear globular lung secretion. Best i can describe it.Have mornings when my lungs hurt. I cough hard and it just hurts more. So I avoid coughing. I have to mention that I have an AC in my bedroom so that also adds to lung dryness / irritation I believe.My money is some type of pneumonia connected to pleurisy, chronic bronchitis and early stage emphysema. That all sounds so mechanical like a failing machine.Time to quit smoking, see a doctor and hope for the best.
