Pulmonary aspiration - Should i order have bronchoscopy to see if food still there, or not?
This afternoon I inhaled little bits of tuna fish. As a reaction I coughed
rather intensely for a few minutes. I felt relieved,
but did not feel or taste any food come out and it felt there was still
food stuck there.
It's been 6 hours since the incident and my right bronchus still feels as if there is
some food in there. There is a small pain and pressure in what i think is the right bronchus.
This pressure and pain intensifies when breathing and swallowing.
I can breathe fine, but the pain and pressure make it feel like something is still stuck there.
