I have recently taken 10 days of my rescue clarithromycin and 10 days of steroids I then did a sputum sample last Tuesday on Thursday call from doc to say it shows an infection but he said as I was feeling a bit better to leave it a while.
Monday went to see doc about a different problem but asked what was the results of the test she said it showed Pseudomonas, she listened to my chest and said it was not too bad and she would see me again on the 18th March and to do a sputum test the week before so she has the results.
This morning feeling awful so called my Respiratory nurse who said I should have been prescribed Ciprofloxacin for the Pseudomonas as Clarithromycin won't touch it and she is sending a colleague around this afternoon with a prescription. (Thank goodness for the experts).
Why don't the Doctors know this, surely it should flag up on the computers what antibiotics are suitable.
I could have been waiting for another 2 weeks.
On the downside, the prescription was delivered not the medicine so have had to ask someone to get it for me.
Roll on better days.
