I have a chest infection that seems to like me so much that it is refusing to go, I'm on 25mg Prednisolone and second course of Clarithromycin antibiotics this in turn is playing havoc with my brittle asthma, my oxygen sats and peak flow being on the low side. This is not helped either by having a sore right lung.
My Respiratory team are worried about my low oxygen sats and peak flow and told me to go to my local hospital for IV antibiotics. I have only just come out of hospital last month and I have a nasty feeling that this would result in another admission.
Ever since July it just seems as though I am spending more time in hospital than at home. I'm so fed up at the moment and my emotions and mood seems to be very variable one minute I could be laughing the next minute I'm in tears for no reason at all.
Just out of curiosity does anyone know how long IV antibiotics take to start to work and is more than one dose needed?
