Well after waiting several months I finally got to see a consultant yesterday who was pretty sure that I have bronchiectasis although I need a scan to confirm for sure.. I feel relieved that finally someone has taken me seriously! I have been put on a mucus thinning drug and given a blue inhaler and once the tests confirm diagnosis will be referred for physio to show me how to clear my lungs and breathe better...taken the first lot of mucus thinning drugs tonight and it might be my imagination but I feel less bunged up and rattly already!
One thing I forgot to ask is about exercise I've not felt up to it really but I'm hoping if things improve I might manage a bit more.. Anyone took up swimming and did it help at all?
