Pleurisy update

Hi everyone,

Just an update on the pleurisy. I went the doctors and they have given me oral steroids for a week and a course of antibiotics. He said I'm quite wheezy and could see I was in pain so may need the steroids for another 3 weeks after. He said it can take up to 6 weeks to go! I've been signed off work for 10 days to start but hoping that's all I need, so fingers crossed 😊
