That is a real blood clot my friends. It came up when this dude coughed really deep and hard.
Even the doctors are dumbfounded. I find it absolutely amazing and absolutely disgusting at the same time.
The human body is incredible. I read in another article that this guy felt instant relief when the clot came up, but
unfortunately died days later due to his other significant medical issues.

I've been coughing up green oysters for the last week.

Starting to clear up.

Considering I have a hearty dry cough myself as a parting gift from a Like-The-Flu-But-Not-The-Flu bug that kicked my ass the other day, and no appetite, this ain't helping matters any. Thanks, JAG, I didn't want to eat today anyway

Did that clot form from the structure of the lung airways? How the hell would you cough that up without it breaking apart, or did they reconstruct all of the parts back together?

It reminds me of dissecting in anatomy class where they would inject solidifying chemicals in the animal's blood vessels, so if you cut carefully, you could remove an entire skeleton network of solidified goo in the shape of the vessels.

It sounds like it came up at one entire piece:

"It’s possible that “because it was so large, he was able to generate enough force from an entire right side of his thorax to push this up and out,” she says. Were it broken up into smaller segments, “he might not have been able to generate the force.”

Usually blood clots in the lungs come from Deep vein Thrombosis in the legs. That can be caused by diet, eating too many lectins in food without proper amounts of foods that stop platelets from sticking together. Some viruses and other infections can also cause clotting of blood as can foods like cheeses and other things aged by microbes. Alcohol is made by microbes but it usually thins the blood, a microbial property too.

This clot almost looks like veins, like the veins came right out of the lungs and are full of clotted blood. If there was COPD issues where an enzyme that stops another enzyme that breaks down tissue is lacking, that could cause a problem like that to possibly occur. Bromelain actually disolves the enzyme that eats the lungs out in copd, and NAC can help strengthen the cells to resist the deterioeration. Similar chemistries are used in the treatment of copd, but bromelain cannot be patented so they created their own methods. NAC is used in some lung sprays too, supposedly just a filler.

Gagged on one


So you're into re-cycling in a big way?

I read in an other article that it's not a solid mass. It's like a thin layer of coagulated blood that when coughed up was folded in on itself. The doctors had to carefully unfold it to reveal the shape.
