Has anyone have any handy tips on helping my mother. She has pbp and is coping well however she has problems with excessive phlegm build up. Last time she stayed with me she stopped breathing because of the phlegm and I called the ambulance. At hospital the doctors perscribed tablets to help reduce the build up however it would be good to know what I can give her to help reduce it more. So far she sucks on ice cubes. It is worse at night and she sleeps sitting up. She is on peg and really cannot swallow much at all now. Also if anybody has any ideas what I could do if she stops breathing again. Get her to cough? thanks Jo.
