I've been diagnosed with Bronchiectasis for a few years now, coughing constantly with lots of mucus each day.
In February I slipped on ice and fractured my wrist: it was a nasty break and needed surgery to insert plate, pins and screws. However while in hospital, and for the next 4 months my daily symptoms just suddenly vanished and have no idea why. So was wondering if there is such a thing as temporary remission for this condition. Friends and family have been commenting as I always seemed to cough more particularly when eating, laughing or talking on the phone and now I dont!
However, just recently have started to cough again, but only slightly, nothing like before and have been going over what could have caused this welcome change. While awaiting surgery it was cancelled three times so was practically fasting for 4 days, the temp was constant at about 23 degrees ( which I hated) and nose and lips were dried up with face like a tomato, because new hospital with windows unable to be opened. Inclined bed position the whole time too.
Therefore, it's been going through my mind, could this improvement been due to the long fast, the temperature of the room, the angled bed, all of them, or none of them. Aware there is no cure, only manageable but if what I've experienced could be due to any of the above I'll definitely replicate it at home as the difference is amazing and feel the healthiest I've been for years, and just keep hoping it continues. Had this ever happened to anyone else?
