I was finally diagnosed with mild bronchiectasis a year ago and have had two nasty chest infections so far. Flew out to Ireland to see my 86 year old dad who had been knocked over by a car on his way to a Carol Service. Dad has cuts and bruises and is recovering well - I think I’m coming down with a chest infection!! I thought that I had been really careful washing my hands frequently and am dreading the prospect of a two week infection over Christmas. I have my rescue pack of antibiotics but I’m never really sure when to start to take them. Does anyone have any tips? Also for flying safely? I am doing the return journey tomorrow.
Merry Christmas all - I have found this forum so useful and inspirational as I knew nothing at all about bronchiectasis beforehand.
