Looking for a lung specialist in JHB

Hi there

I'm 33 years old and have been coughing for years. I used to smoke but gave up 4 years ago. I can't handle coughing anymore. Sometimes my constant coughing causes my chest to ache. I've would like to go and see a specialist. Can you help?

Thank you
Stef

Hi, I was diagnosed with bronchitis a while back and had sporadic attacks (throat blockages) but it has since stopped (about 6/7 years now). For the past two days I've been getting attacks. This time it feels like there's lump of air blocking my throat. I feel a little dizzy when it happens and I have slight chest pains (discomfort). Please advice.

I have a 1 year old who has been coughing for 4 months now. We have been in and out to doctors rooms with no help. Over the counter medication was of no help either. Last week she was admitted, diagnosed with asthma. I still feel its something else and not asthma because symptoms are far from it. I dont know what to do anymore????

I am 73 - about 10 yrs ago had a mole removed from my back. Was sent away for analysis & came back benign. My dermatologist said he had been worried about it. I am concerned as I was told I had COPD but I have a continuous chesty cough with lots of mucus - constantly tired, no energy & shortness of breath. Am also experiencing bowel problems. Please help me

Hi I have a 5 month old daughter who was diagnosed with pneumonia and PDA AND TAPVD at 7 weeks. The pneumonia was treated and She had an open heart operation at 3 months to fix the PDA and TAPVD. The operation was successful but there was a bit of a lung complication. Her left lung keeps on collapsing even after physiotherapy, the surgeons did a bronchoscopy to try fix whatever they thought was the problem but still that did not work. They also did an operation to fix the diaphram because the had learnt that it was not functioning on the left side, which might be the cause but still that did not work because even up to today her left lung is collasping reoccurringly. She is still in Hospital ICU ward. Please help.
