I am 38 years old. I have had a cough for 7 months since COVID. I started having shortness of breath and went to the ER. They diagnosed me with pneumonia, congestive heart failure, and a lung nodule. They rushed me in and out. Since the hospital has called and wants the nodule checked for cancer. My shortness of breath is gone but I’m still coughing up yellow/brown phlegm a few times a day. Is this something that happens with CHF? I don’t see my regular doctor for 3 more weeks. I have three kids under 10. How can I have congestive heart failure so young and lung cancer? Any specifics on your cough would be so appreciated.
