I was diagnosed early this year with bronchiectasis and pseudomonas infection, after many years of serious chest infections. I am currently taking oral ciprofloxacin and nebulised colomycin.
For the last month or so I have been feeling better than I have felt for years, my cough is almost gone, I am not coughing up the thick green yeasty tasting sputum that I have been for years. I actually believe that the pseudomonas has been beaten.
The problem in my mind is that the medical people around me seem to have very little interest in my condition, to the point that since my discharge from hospital in March this year I have had no contact with my doctor or the consultant that diagnosed me.
Should I tell my doctor that I am feeling better and risk being taken off the antibiotics and not be able to get back onto this treatment or just be glad that it's working and carry on?
What would you do in my situation?
