After 2 months, we had to fight and beg for X-Rays. My left lung hurt so much. Finally my voice slowly came back. It took til June until people could understand me on the phone. A doctors office called me in June to make an appointment. They hung up and called about an hour later, saying that their phone system wasn’t working well. They had a tech look at the system, and he was scheduled to come back and find out what was wrong. I finally convinced the appointment rep that it was me, and not the phones. By that time, they could hear most of my words, but electronics and hearing aids picked up and magnified the sketchy breathing.
Remember, nothing is alleged to--or can have--happened to all of MLB over some one or two seasons: the claim is that PEDs were being used at a slowly but steadily increasing rate (and thus "distorting records") from very roughly 1980 through the present. Were that so, or anything like it, we would expect to see a clear long-term uptrend during this period. But we don't: we see a nearly flat line that, if anything, slopes slightly down. The "boost" just isn't there. But that doesn't seem to stop anyone from talking about it.
The complications of coughing can be classified as either acute or chronic .
