This is my first visit to this site and I have come across some great advice already. I have had Bronchiectasis for a good few year now and can normally control infections with various different oral antibiotics. However for the last 4 / 5 weeks I have not been able to 'Shift it' and have felt feverish, exhausted and generally rubbish. My doctor called me this morning and said I have grown a bug called Pseudomonas and has prescribed me Ciprofloxacin ~ Is Pseudomonas a form of Pneumonia ? It sounds like it is a difficult bug to clear. Any advice would be very well appreciated. Also does anybody else have bowel disease alongside COPD ~ I have had a full colectomy due to Ulcerative colitis. I have heard of links between the two conditions.
Looking forward to chatting and hopefully hearing back from some of you
