Hi, i've been having investigations since July last year after having what I thought was a straight forward chest infection. It never cleared up and after months of tests and hospitalizations I am now going to the Brompton for my results next week. I've been told I have an abnormal Trachea and they were considering Polychondritis but I am struggling to get them to rule out many of the tests they have taken. I have been past between several teams and tested for things like TB on several occassions. My question is, is this standard procedure, I would have thought it would have been easier to diagnose than this?
