hi guys i would just like to tell you my problems and hope there’s someone on here to give me some of they’re wisdom. Sorry it’s a long post.
I started coughing six weeks ago. After a few days I consulted the Dr and he prescribed Antibiotics. However I still kept coughing. I went back after finishing the last dose of Amoxicillan. He then gave me Doxycycline which again had no effect on me. I went back and he said there was no point in giving me more antibiotics and sent me for an X-ray and a blood test. It was left like that I was then told I have a flare up of Aspergillosis, my lungs are also hyperinflated and I’ve got interstitial scarring which has spread slightly. I had one Dr said I have Pulmonary Fibrosis and it’s spread to the lining of the lung and another looked at her notes and said she can see nothing there to suggest I’ve got it. Now I don’t know what to think. My Husband had IPF and I lost him eight and a half years ago so I know quite a bit about it.
I spoke to the practice nurse a couple of days ago and told her I need steroids. I had a bit of a fight to get them but eventually after reading my last admission into hospital she agreed. The thing is I just wasn’t getting better and felt weak doing anything. I had a wash a few days ago and I couldn’t even hold my head up. I knew then I needed more help. Id also woke up in the morning and couldn’t breathe. It was that that sent me into hospital last time when I passed out. That’s when they discovered the Aspergillosis. I’ve still got a cough but I’m not coughing up so much mucus. I’ve got a bit more energy now but still not too good.
has anyone had this and is there anything more I can do to help myself. Or can anything more be done.
