my daughter is 2, since having her MMR she developed an infection, which causes the same symptoms as CF, she has had her sweat test and it has come back negative. she has a course of co-amoxiclav and usually the thick muscus subsides for a few days while still receiving the medicine. After a few days have passed after the course it comes back aggressively, we struggle to get her temp down this often results in rigor convulsions. She has been on several different antibiotics and penicillin for the last year, co-amoxiclav is the only one that gives her some respite from the continuous infection, she has been on it for 10 months now. we normally have a visit to A&E or her consultant every 2 weeks, she is supposed to be having an adeno-tonsillectomy but they wont operate while she is this way, it is a viscous circle as she is only well 2-3 days after the course finishes, no one seems to no what's going on with her, as this has gone on for over a year she copes generally well, most of the time, this helps me because she is not visibly suffering on the outside, I am scared for her, it's heart breaking. Does anyone have any advice or support, maybe some suggestions of test that can be done as we feel the consultants are suggesting that they have approached every angle but she has only been tested for CF, she has a very poor immunity she did not have her boosters because she was very poorly when she was due them, we were advised by the DR she could not have them. Any advice would be greatly received. Sarah
