Hello there. The lungs have been damaged to a certain extent by the past tuberculosis therefore sputum can get easily accumulated. You need to take steam inhalation daily and you can take a mucolytic and expectorant like syrup. Asthakind-ls 10ml thrice a day along with tab. Deriphylline 150 retard twice a day. For further help. Consult a physician in person. Regards
