Hi everyone, hoping someone could give me some advice. My mother is 69 and was diagnosed with mild bronchieactasis about 5 years ago. She's always kind of managed, taking antibiotics when she's had an infection, but recently, she had 4 weeks of cipro, which didn't help and started causing tendonitis, was told by her gp to go to a and e as she's so chesty, and full of crackles. She was admitted for 3 days, given tazacin, but they said they weren't sure she even has an infection and it's just that she's not bringing up her the mucus properly and her chest x ray was clear. She feels like she has an infection, or not her norm, is constantly bringing up phlegm and is very chesty and wheezy, and I really just don't know what to do. The sputum samples she sent only showed yeast, but they said they wouldn't do anything for that as her mouth was clear, but could yeast really make her feel so unwell? She also had colonised pseudomonas.. but is this what is causing it? I really don't know how to to help or advise her and this round of unwellness feels different to anything she has experienced before. Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated. She has an appointment with her consultant in a month but it's always someone different and she seems whoever annually.
