I have Bronchiectasis (20 years), and am colonised with haemophilius influenza, and get
one chest infection after another - sensitive to amoxicillin/doxycycline.
I went to see my consultant at the Royal Brompton, and told him I get a lot of infections.
He wants to admit me for 7-10 days IV injections; I suppose to get rid of it forever.
I'm sceptical that it's only temporary, and will be back in my lungs, eventually again when
I get a cold. I'm also worried that when/if I get an infection, oral medication won't work; and I'm stuck with IVs.
Have any of you had an IV for HI, and indeed, it clobbered it on the head forever?
Also do you know anything about a vaccine for HI? How do you get it?
Thanks a lot
