  • My gob is well and truly smacked!

    "Finally, one GP .... said that when he is pressurized into prescribing an antibiotic he gives erythromycin and does not warn the patient not to take it on an empty stomach [which causes pain].

    “If I wanted to be nasty to somebody.......I think people.... could theoretically call me unethical but I do not think I am....” "

  • Yes, I like to keep serenity on the go, but not very tolerant w here vulnerable patients are concerned. Some the things, I read about what can happen in modern hospitals, and staff, I do not understand.

  • I expect you have heard of PALS, patients' advsory liaison service or something like that. I had poor treatment in South Africa, 14 years ago resulting in pneumonia on my return to the UK, years ago.. Things haven't been right since. Blamed a buggy lady on the plane.

  • Wow! Makes you think doesn't it.

  • With flibberti, I agree they are not really good. The only good out of it is if you go to sleep and start coughing for ever, not being able to cough up, perhaps something like Pholcodine which contains codeine, just to help you sleep. Otherwise, try Active Breathing Cycle Technique to cough up as gently as you can before sleeping - and during the day.
