Finished my course of AB's from the Hospital A&E visit on Sunday and thought I had improved but still had a silly cough but not so much as before but yesterday I felt like my lungs were been tightened all around and Ventolin did nothing for me. One of the issues I had was the stupid cough was aggravating my compression fractures which in turn caused my back muscles to go into spasm, adding to the pain on coughing. So the cycle continued, by the time I went to bed I checked my O2 and it was a nice steady 91%.
This morning I dropped the wife to work and went to the surgery to see if they would see me? I got one of the few pleasant reception staff who looked me up and said "10:50 okay?" No problem with that so pop home until the appointment. The usual 10 minutes after my 10:50 time I am called though and explain what has happened in the last 2 weeks. For him to check me over and state my right lung is crackling and it would seem the infection has either not gone or come back! He looked at the A&E discharge notes and said he is going to put me back on the same course of AB's so one 625 mg 3 times a day and another 500 mg twice a day.
He asked if it is the right lung I have the most problems with? I told him that since the right side diaphragm was paralysed yes, but it used to be the left that went wrong before the most? He finished with the infection should be gone but if you are even mildly not right after the course come straight back.
Slightly off topic. My Son has now got C Diff probably because of the AB's he has had of late? They have moved him into another room and fumigating the one he was in. So until I get the all clear I cannot see him! Still no donor match found and they are saying it could be over a year before he can think about working again!
