Hi all... I have been away from this site for a few weeks, but I am back and lately I have had some issues with "coughing"... I find that the mucus basically gets stuck and I am having a hard time getting it up and out.
Does anyone have any recommendations on how to treat this? Assist?
Thank you in advance.

Hey I know your questions was a long time ago... Hope you have it resolved, but there are great coughing protocols in physical therapy: Autogenic drainage and active cycle of breathing.
