Hi, I was diagnosed with Copd & Emphysema in 2014, I had emergency surgery to remove part of my right lung, and spent a few weeks in hospital on various drugs. I am also on the lung transplant list.
Since 2014 I have been ok, still working and I was swimming 5 times a week. But at the end of Jan I caught a cold/flu bug that became a chest infection, and after 3 lots of antibiotics and steroids, this brought my O2 stats down to 50%. I was taken to hospital and treated for 7 days by IV antibiotics. I am now home, but still have a very chesty cough and coughing up yellowish mucus. Is there anything I can take, a certain type of antibiotic that might help clear my chest?
