Braxton Posted June 23, 2020 Share Posted June 23, 2020 My ex husband, who is also my best friend has been coughing up small amounts of blood for the last four days. It started when he lifted a heavy box above his head and wrenched his right side. He was in alot of pain. He was taking ALEVE for the pain first two days. The pain has subsided. He does smoke a pack a day. He is not losing weight, not unusually tired, and appetite is good, no shortness of breath, or pain upon breathing. Don't know if this lifting injury and started to cough up blood is a coincidence. I know it can be a symtom of lung cancer. He doesn't cough but very little and doesn't cough that much, maybe three times a day. Today he woke up and bottom of right ribs feels sore in one spot. I am alittle worried.
