More antibiotics and steroids

I posted a couple days ago as I was very breathless with normal coloured sputum. I was advised to see my COPD nurse, which I did this morning. I have been put on amoxicillin and prednisalone as I do have a lung infection. She has also has booked me in to have blood tests and an ECG, as my brother died last month of ischaemic heart disease, which she said could be inherited. My poor breathing could possibly be connected to heart disease as well. I would like to thank all of you who persuaded me to get help. Vivxxx

  • Hi Viv so glad you have seen the doc and the doc is checking out other areas for you also. So sorry to hear about your brother. You must be feeling very upset still, my thoughts are with you and all those close to your brother.

    Hope you find the amoxicillin and pred course does the trick and you will soon be breathing easier.

    Keeping fingers crossed for your blood test results and ECG.

    All good wishes BC x
