I've been off work for two months now being out of breath, coughing the green gunk and blood since October and had a consolidation on my chest x-ray. A sputum test is 'satisfactory' and now my CT scan back today is also 'satisfactory'. What does that mean? I have tried to get an appointment with the doctor and the receptionist tells me there is nothing for the next two weeks. If I phone on Friday they might be able to get me in the following week. I have said I either need a sick note or a fit note and was told that they can backdate it. I can't walk far without getting out of breath, I can't sleep, and I have such embarrassing coughing fits. I am glad there is nothing that they are worried about, but this is obviously not NOTHING!
