I have bronchiectasis and the other day I had a very heavy cold and chest/lung pain.
I put in a sample of my sputum to find out what was causing the long pain to my local hospital
expecting to get the result after 48 hrs. (as it has always done), but instead it came back
only after 24 hrs with no bacterium found. I wonder if anyone knows how long sputum samples should be cultivated before there is a result.
Thanks a lot
