The Cough Won’t Heal And Is Associated With Watery Lungs?
I am a smoker, yesterday every morning I coughed and did not recover. after checking my lungs there was water can it be cured?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. The meaning of watery lungs in medical science can mean various things, including:
Pneumonia or simply called wet lungs. This condition occurs when the lungs are infected with bacteria, viruses or fungi, are more likely to attack smokers, and cause lung tissue to secrete fluid in response to inflammation. Pleural effusion, or a condition in which fluid builds up in the tissue between the layers of the lungs. Basically this layer does produce fluid as a lubricant when a person breathes, but due to certain conditions such as tuberculosis infection, heart failure, kidney disease, liver disease, and cancer, the fluid accumulates too much Pulmonary edema or pulmonary edema, when a person has difficulty breathing because of this. buildup of fluid in the air sacs of the lungs called alveoli. Because the space that should be filled by air is filled with water, a person cannot breathe optimally and feels symptoms of tightness, coughing, and possibly swelling. This condition can be preceded by heart problems, high blood pressure, heart valve disease, and smoking
So what we want to say is that there are many possibilities that could happen to you, and not all of them can be cured just like that. Some require long treatment, some cannot be cured at all but can be controlled, and some only need antibiotics and rest, depending on the disease and its severity.
Therefore, the one who can best answer your questions is the pulmonologist who treats you. Our advice, consult your doctor again, ask the diagnosis, what treatment steps you should take, and what you can expect with your recovery. Will it take you weeks, months or something. For tuberculosis, for example, the treatment is at least 9 months, and for cancer, it may not be cured. So it is very important to clarify the communication between you and the doctor who treats you.
Meanwhile, stop smoking, exercise regularly, get adequate rest, obey doctor's recommendations, and get yourself checked out regularly. So, hopefully it answers your question.
