Sorry it’s taken so long to come back to the Forum. However we were very grateful for the support and advice my husband received from you on my husband’s diagnosis.
He felt brushed off after our visit to his consultant who said his condition was mild and his doctor would manage this from now on. We have had good support from his practice nurse and the community respiratory team. He is taking carbocisteine and has was given an exercise to help shift the mucus.
A set back this week as we called the respiratory nurse as his cough was much worse only for her to diagnose a chest infection on her visit. Now on 30mg steroids for 5 days and a months course of antibiotics. He is worried about the steroids as due to his heart condition he isn’t supposed to take them. Hoping that short term will not do any harm. No doubt there are others in a similar condition.
In the meantime we will keep reading your posts and thank you for being there.
