I have been on antibiotics and steriods for 8 days, 4 more days to go. Coughing up plenty of gunk, very sore abs due to coughing so much. On a brighter note my peak flow is better and waiting for results of a chest xray.

Have bought a portable nebulizer online as recommended by my GP and he will prescribe the meds for it.

I fly to the USA next Monday (11 hrs) and just want advice as to doing anything else to get better quicker x

Sorry to hear you've not been well. Can I suggest calling the Astham UK nurse team, they might have some suggestions to help your recovery. They can be reached on 0300 222 5800. (M-F, 9-5).

Hope that helps,
