Hi I'm new here. I've been diagnosed with severe COPD last year since then I've been in and out of hospital 6 times with chest infections / pnumonia. I was last in hospital in March and the doctors treated me for TB. Turns out I have emplasema in both lungs and also a tracia bronchiostasis top and bottom of right lung. I was up to see the consultant last week and was informed the chest X-ray I had in April shows I still have infection. He did not offer antibiotics and has arranged for another X-ray I will get another CT scan if the infection/swelling has gone down to see if there's anything "more sinister" going on. I'm 50 years old, married with three kids and two beautiful grand daughters
