I hope I am back on line now it would never post to my email so I have changed it to my principal one. I will not mince words I have had a rotten year at last they have found a antibiotics that works doxicycline 100mg twice a day. Also I have colonised MRSA but it will not stop the planed operation the only thing here is I go in as a day case get isolated and done last on the list. Saw chest doctor last week not much hope there he told me I will just keep having flare ups with some needing 'IV' antibiotics when I expressed my displeasure of having to go into hospital due to my last two stays being traumatic he just said no problems the community IV team was a great success so via my GP I can activate this if and when needed so I was happy there I just may have to go in for few hours to have a midline put in and to collect my jungle juice. Thank you all for your messages of concern just been through flare up no 29 in a year I am hoping against hope I will not have much more this year. Anyone know if this year's flu jab cosier or not?.
