Hi, I went to see my consultant today Wednesday. He told me that not only did I have pneumonia, but he detected TB-like bacteria, the name of which he had never heard of before, godola!
I did tell him that when I checked about night sweats, one of the causes was TB. I had put myself back on Rifampicin. He approved! I am also on Clarythromycin. He told me I would be on this indefinitely, since when I stop I get ill again, because my lungs are damaged by bronchiectasis.
I feel tired, emotionally and physically after this visit.
I asked him about the pain due to coughing, Paracetamol is the answer. I dived on them as soon as I reached home..
