After several weeks of strong antibiotics, told pseudomonas etc has gone, no further action, three cheers! Now I have to get over tiredness caused by them, and hopefully go out in Jag when feel ok. Yes Jag has replacement seat belt lock, passed its MOT. Now going to Nebulise, always things to keep me busy, as sure every one else has! Best regards, Jean x

Azithromycin, Septrin Forte, and Ciproxin 750. I’ve had six courses of iv ceftazidmine, didn’t get rid of nasties so took two oral antibiotics simultaneously, whilst on holiday on motorbike in Scottish highlands, think clear air helped, didn’t have to have any a.b.for 8 months afterwards, damaged liver but that healed itself. That was 15 years ago, Consultant doesn’t want me to do it again. Had iv antibiotics at home this summer, cleared lungs for 5 weeks, but upset my balance. Nurses coming to do it didn’t give me information leaflet about antibiotics, found one afterwards that listed balance issues amongst side effects. Will know got to insist on seeing leaflet next time. Best wishes, Jean x

it’s interesting that you are taking Ciproxin at same time as ceftazidime, I.e. one oral and one i.v. Will keep this in mind and discuss with consultant when have next review. I did my own i.v. at home with help from late husband. Hope you have help, and soon better. Jean x

Yeah! Please do tell me your consultants view on this combination. My doc told me to hit it hard in the first time so that it goes away. I have also been doing my iv on my own with the help of my parents. I am 18 though🙂. Cheers

Good grief, your doctor sounds interesting. I take it you had a sputum test that showed pseudomonas and or other nasties. As I was born in 1935 with PCD, when during war slept in cold damp air raid shelter, had lots of chest issues, colds etc and at 11 had pneumonia etc. Wasn’t until 31 that finally diagnosed with PCD and bronchiectasis. First antibiotics at 26 when had pleurisy worked like magic. So now you know my history. Yes will discuss with my respiratory consultant merits of your combination, has your doctor mention referring you to a consultant, think ought! Best wishes, Jean x

well done. Congratulations on getting rid of pseudomonas. I understand they can be difficult to clear up so very good news. Whenever anyone mentions Jag i always think of the one inspector Morse used to drive. Have some pleasants journeys now.

Take care 👍👍😊

Hi Jean.

So pleased to hear you have conquered the pseudo infection. I have just had 14 days in hospital for IV Ceftazidine, but seeing your reply to Sufferer that it didn't work for you has me worried!! Unfortunately I can't take Cipro so not a lot left. Did you find Septrin forte useful?

I must wish you a very enjoyable trip out when you get the Jaguar on the road xxx
