Cough with white sticky mucus
My husband had a dry cough for about two months, and then decided to quit smoking last August.  The cough did not clear up.  The doctor took an x-ray said it was normal.  After a couple more months the cough became pleghmy like and he spits up easily after coughing.  It is a white sticky mucuous, sort of stringy.  The doctor put him on Spiriva, which made him lose his breath easily.  He has been using Flovent HFA110MCG INH 12GM 2 puffs per day since 4-20-2010.  It has helped cut down on the coughing and pleghm, but he quit using it a few days ago because it was affecting his vocal cords.   Now he is coughing and spitting up the mucousy stuff, and sounds wheezy in the head at night.  I am very worried, that the doctor has not ordered more tests.   What should I do?  He is not very worried, but I am very worried.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
