Hi, I'm new to this site. Looking for some advice, i would be grateful for any received. I am 35 and had double pneumonia and pleurisy following a series of cold-like viruses in December and January. I have had chest infections since then and been on 7 courses of antibiotics, none of which seem to be effective. I have had a few chest x rays, the last one showing a mass in my lower left lung. Am now under a chest doctor who said I should have a ct scan and had been trying to refer me for one for 6 weeks. Radiology don't want me to have unless necessary. I have involved PALs who are trying to help.
I am a smoker and trying to give up today.
My gp doesn't think it's serious but probably have scarring. I lost a stone whilst i had pneumonia and another stone over the last six weeks. I am very fatigued with a productive cough. anyone had similar experiences? Thanks.
