I have both Bronchiectasis and Tracheobronchomalacia (TBM). I do have a daily routine to keep my mucus thinned, but my bigger concern is the TBM. Sometimes my coughing is so hard trying to clean out the mucus that I've even caused petechiae eye. I have read lately that this condition can be life threatening. I've read that this can cause heart failure.
1.Should I be concerned about this TBM or not? 2.Can hard coughing cause more damage to my TBM?
