Hello Jolene123 .

What did the doctor prescribe for your infection? It really depends but it can well take weeks for a chest infection to clear. I know the worst infection I had took about two months to really go. 😐

Perhaps you can write a new post? Maybe you would get more response to your question. Take care.

Hello shortytree .

I'm sorry things are very difficult for you and your partner at the moment. I'm sorry to ask but why is it the CT scan could not shed more light on the condition of the nodules?

Indeed it is a very long time to have to wait to see the specialist and I do understand your stress and worry. Pulmonary rehabilitation will be hard at first, but most people benefit greatly from it. In the mean time, try gentle exercises. This may help.

Hang in there, although I understand it is very difficult. Having an illness like this can make it hard to enjoy the other things in life, but trying to is so important for our mental wellbeing. Patient and caregiver alike.

Do let us know how things progress.

Sending hugs.

So sorry you have to wait, I know it isn’t easy. Why don’t you try contacting your GP in a couple of weeks to see if he got some news.

Maybe earlier if your partner is getting through his inhalers quicker, he is probably more breathless than usual. You could also give a ring to the BLF helpline to see how to handle the situation.

Wishing you both well x
