I spent all weekend coughing up various shades of sputum, saw my GP yesterday and was told that the last test at micro biology I had grown a very unusual bug, not normally found in this country and it does not respond to most antibiotics. (With the exception of ciprofloxacin which I can't take)
When I got home there was a letter from the Consultant saying almost the same but could they have a another sample asap.
So I got the sample bottle and like magic the cough stopped. That little jar seems to work better than antibiotics.
My wife has just taken the tiny sample to the surgery, and the productive cough is back.
