Hi All,

Hope you all had a good Christmas and wish you all a healthy happy New Year.

I have an infection on the bottom of my right lung again?

This is the third time in 3 months. No cough No cold just got no airways out of breath just walking around and getting dressed!

I've had 3 lots of clarithramycine( can't spell it) and 3 lots of steroids 8 a day.

The doctor is surprisedI have had no cold systems. Has anyone else had a repeated infection which is obviously not knocked on the head?

Hi Hungryhorse, thought l would just reply to say that Pete had not had an infection like that. I do hope something can be gone for you.

Wishing you a happy new year too. Take care xxxxxx

Story of my life. Sputum test identifies bug antibiotic to counteract. One week later another Sputum test identifies different bug, antibiotics to counteract. 7 days later Sputum test back to original bug back to original antibiotics. And so the cycle continues. So exhausted. Seeing my consultant tomorrow on planned visit hoping for answers. Not holding my breath, lol couldn't if I tried. 😊hope you feel better soon. X



I hope you get yours resolved too xxHH


Just wondering how you are 😀
