I am a 73 year old male. I retired 10 years ago. Was very healthy until I retired. Since the I have had a knee replacement and surgery on both lungs to peel debris that had accumulated on the lung. No cancer. For years I have been coughing up a lot of phlegm, sometimes yellow, day and night. I am not short of breath and had sinus surgery years ago. I have been to numerous doctors and no one can tell me what is going on. Tired of being like this every day. Anyone else ever been through anything like this. I do not have asthma or COPD. Miserable in Michigan
