I have been coughing up the thick green stuff and blood since October. Four courses of antibiotics following a chest x-ray showing a consolidation made no difference on the follow up x-ray.
I had to send of a sputum specimen to check what would clear it and was signed off sick for a second month. A week later I was told the results were in but the GP had to see it today. I had a CT scan last night and told to expect 10 days for the results.
I phoned today re the sputum sample and was told it was 'satisfactory' and I don't need any follow up. In the meantime I am still coughing my guts up and have no energy. The coughing attacks are so embarrassing as I am forever gipping and my Tenas can hardly cope with the fall out! What now?!!
