I have been on this web site many times and find you all very helpful and caring. So much good info to be had. I have been on before re this HIB infection that never seems to go away completely. I have had the HIB injection to no avail also nothing in the antibiotic line helps for any length of time, I do a sputum test every time and every time it comes back with the same thing HIB and doxycycline will work but doesn't. Tried many other antibiotics but it never goes. I'm on Azithromycin every other day which helps to a certain extent but few days down the line I'm back to not being able to breathe. I'm on Steroids at that moment which help very much but I cant stay on them forever or want to otherwise what have you to fall back on. I have done all the pulmonary rehab a couple of times and try and stay active as well, I have arthritis in my knees as well which I have been told both need replacing so exercising isn't easy. But again the steroids help my knees as it stops all this inflammation. Does any one else have this blessed HIB like have and do you know anything that can help? Thanks for your patience in listening to me.
