Sorry I seem to keep asking questions all the time at the moment. I'm still trying to get my head round this world of Bronchiectasis. So I have a question about mucus and antibiotics. I've had Haemophilus Influenze 5 times since feb. The first 4 times I had amoxicillin (500mg 3 times a day). This time I'm on cefixime (200mg 2 times a day). From questions i've already asked i'm assuming that the reason I keep getting H.I is because we're not getting rid of it completely with each set of antibiotics however the first three times of antibiotics after about a week of taking them everything stopped, there was no cough, there was no mucus, if there was anything it was tiny and white and maybe once/twice a day. During the 4th lot of antibiotics the mucus was still there and I would maybe get 3 - 4 tsps up a day in a pale yellow colour all the way through. This time on cefixime, i'm coughing up stuff maybe 3 - 4 times a day. The first time its about a spoonful, fairly thick and yellowy and when I do the cough I get that unpleasant taste you sometimes get. As the day goes on it gets smaller and smaller to the point that it's just a teeny tiny pale yellow dot. I'm 9 days in to my antibiotics and i'm just a bit concerned that this is still going on, shouldn't it have either all gone or it be clear/white? As mentioned previously i've had antibiotics and everything has gone away, is this normal or is what i'm experiencing now normal? I saw the gp and she said that the antibiotics kill the bacteria not the mucus which I understand but then I don't get how 3 times previously it's all gone away and now it's not. I just don't get this illness!
