Chest Clinic update

Well my friends, I have had the lung function tests (or posh spirometry, as I think of them), and the Consultant told me nothing has really changed, which is good news. They are going to teach me how to administer IV Antibiotics myself at home, so going for a PICC line sometime soon. Should be good, as it means I can keep my immunity deficient body out of hospital, and also clear up some of these lingering infections which the Gentamicin nebulised twice a day and the Azythromycin three times a week, aren't controlling very well. Hopefully I will feel an improvement.

Good luck to you WheezyAnne. Xxxx

Glad to hear you are relatively stable WheezyAnne and doing those i.v ab's at home will be a bonus during these cold and damp winter months saving you from braving the elements to attend hospital.

Sounds good, that’s what I wanted for those lingering infections too.

Good luck with the new treatment xx

I have felt for a long time that my infections weren't clearing fully. I am dreading the time when they stop working altogether. The immunity deficient decease does not help.
