Hi, I am 61 and spit bright red blood first thing after a nights sleep, I do not bring up any during the day even having coughed and
maybe brought up phlem. I do have a sore
thoat most of the time but do not have a problem swallowing food. In march 2009 I stopped smoking after a second heart attack. My sense of smell is now almost non existent, although this is supposed to improve after quitting cigs ?.
