My GP phoned me this morning to tell me that at the end of December I sent my sputum for testing. Immediately, th microbiologist diagnosed Moraxella catharalis for which Clarithromycin would deal with it. Now another real bother has appeared. The test for mycobacterium has come through, I have M. gordonae which I had last year in March too.
My GP said she would communicate this to my chest consultant. Next week, I shall try to put a sputum for testing to see if it is still there. That probably means I shall be on Clarithromycin and Rifampicin for the rest of my days. Ooooh! Not fun!
