Hi all. I am living in Paris for a couple of years from the uk with my husband and daughter (3yrs old) since our daughter was a few weeks old she has always had colds, god told us it was normal then when she started at nursery it was normal because she was at nursery and to expect this for at least a year then after the year children get colds. After two years and hanging go practises we were referred to edinburgh sick kids who stayed her and found part of her lung had collapsed after 4 weeks of strong antibiotics she was still coughing but the lung was ok. Three months later they did an endoscope and the consultant could not believe how much thick Lucas was in side her lungs. She has been on oreventative antibiotics for almost a year now . She was referred to another consultant here in Paris and he is redoing the endoscope in two weeks as she is still coughing (although better on the preventative antibiotics) he said the latest X-ray showed there was a problem as the bronchial was thickened (something the oederrituon did not notice ere when shown the same X-ray he said the X-ray was healthy). Currently the consultant thinks she either has pcd (no recent ear infections but before she started the preventative antibiotic she did used to get regular ear infections in both ears) or that she had a really. As infection as a baby and it has 'damaged her bronchial'. I'm really confused and swinging between happy that we are moving forward and upset that my baby is ill. In Paris the chest physio comes to the house a couple of evening a week and I don't even know if that's possible in the uk. I am panicking for what this might mean when we get back to the uk. And long ten care. Any advise would be greatly appreciated
