Assistant: Do you have a fever? Do you have any other existing medical conditions?
Customer: I've got aortic stenosis but this is different I'm constantly coughong up thick white mucus and breathing is very shallow untill the mucus is cleared

Customer: replied 4 days ago.
I'm just taking cough syrup and a brown inhaler I've already had steroids and antibiotics

Do you have any chest X-ray or echocardiogram done since having these symptoms?

Regards

Customer: replied 4 days ago.
No but had them done in March everything was fine but I did have bronchitis at that time also

Thanks for the information

As these symptoms mainly started in october and not responding to steroids and antibiotic you should have a chest X-ray and echocardiogram

This will pick whether the issue is related to lungs or heart

As Aortic stenosis can also get worse with infection so this a possible cause of shortness of breath must be ruled out

In that case you will need diuretic to help with shortness of breath
