Anyone been diagnosed with this bug?
I had a sputum test months ago which resulted in me being given a course of Amoxicillin. After a follow up test the surgery never got back in touch with me so I assumed all was well until at my COPD check the nurse mentioned I'd had two lots of ABs. I corrected her, told her I'd only had the one course then she told me my second sputum test still showed signs of infection and I should have had a second course of ABs. They couldn't be prescribed as it was a few weeks since the second sputum test was done and I was asked to send in another sample.
I find it very difficult to do and it took me 5 months to get another sample to them and there were still signs of an infection and I was given a 10 day course of Ciprofloxacin. As I've still got some slight symptoms I rung the surgery to ask if they wanted a repeat of the sputum test or would they just repeat the prescription. I spoke to one of the Drs who said the test showed Pseudonomas and suggested repeating the sputum test.
I got the impression from what the Dr said that it is something that can be difficult to get rid of. I've done a bit of googling but don't really like doing too much of that.
Anyone heard of it, experienced it, managed to get rid of it, is living with it?
