Hi all, I'm in my 4 th lot of antibiotics for a chest infection, now on the 4 th day in. I'm also on pred 20mg for two weeks, 3 rd day in.
So far my breathing sounds no better, in fact I would say it might be a bit worse.
I saw the respiratory specialist on Thursday last week who said the whole of my lung chambers were filled with mucous. My breathing sounds horrific, even he was surprised how bad it sounded.
All this started in October with an asthma flare. I'm so sick of it, it's been 5 months and we go on holiday in just over a week.
He asked me to go back and see him in two weeks or before if it's no better.
The thing is I'm so busy with work ( self employed) before I go away I would need to call the secretary tomorrow and get booked in. Wondering if I'm just being impatient?
I'm on Azithromycin and Seretide inhaler.
I never bring any mucous up, it's still all just sitting on my chest.
