Hi there everybody, my name is kate and ive belonged to this site for a few years, but have never really asked many questions, i just like reading how everybody copes with this horrible disease. I had asthma when i was 12, and put on steroids when i was 15, im now steroid independant, my ct scan showed i had bronchiectasis about 8 years ago, Im on LTOT for 19 hours a day on 2L and oxygen for going out with, Im on all the medicines, tablets etc, and getting frequent chest infections, only this time the nurse did a sputum test and it came back negative, my question is can you still have a infection if it was clear, as i feel sob, not coughing and my sats are fairly low on oxygen and off, my consultant has put me on ampicillin for 6 weeks and then to go onto the 3 x a week azith, I have a rescue pack of clary do you think I should start them instead cos to me ampicillin is something i was put on as a child. Thank you for taking the time to read this, love this site its so informative, and people are really helpful and kind. xx
