My husband has copd and has had 11 courses of antibiotics and steroids in 13 months. I think he should be investigated further but his GP says they wouldn't give them on repeat prescription if it wasn't safe. He also has had a permanent cough now for 6 months but they are not bothering to investigate further. An X-ray came back clear but I have heard they don't show up everything and think he should have an MRI scan. Any advice please?
