Was diagnosed with a severe right lower lobe infection beginning of December.
Amoxcycillin was given for 7 days with no effect.
Then given clarithromycin for 7 days which had partial success.
Seemed better over Xmas, but began feeling unwell 2nd week of january-still coughing up horrible yellow phlegm .
I went back to docs on Friday, the crackles from the infection had gone but was left with mild asthma and a slight wheeze where infection was.
Doc told me the after effects may take months to go as infection was large and serious.He sent me for a routine chest infection on monday-results should be with him friday.Iam now getting in a state,I've convinced myself it's not gonna come back clear,despite me feeling better (at diagnosis, I couldn't walk 100 yards without getting out of breath,now walking and getting breathless isn't an issue).
Iam a 50 yo,non smoker and this has knocked me sideways-both physically and mentally.
Any advice or opinions?
