Those who frequent this forum will probably have seen my posts but cliff notes: I’ve been treated for severe asthma for a while but doc thinks there’s something else adding to it as I’m atypical; things got worse again before Christmas and have been shaky since; had amoxicillin, co-amoxiclav, and doxycycline then sputum sample showed Staph and Pseudomonas, got flucloxacillin but still no better; saw consultant on Tuesday just been and got ciprofloxacin but then got hives every time I took it. Typical. So today I got admitted and am now having IV Tazocin.
Quite honestly I was ready for this. I’ve been so tired and breathless I’ve struggled to make food, stay hydrated, and do my chest physio and I’m trying to stay on track with a full-time undergrad course as well. To have other people take over my meds, food, and drink, and to help me with my chest clearance, is actually a relief at this point and I’m just hoping Tazocin kicks things. I’m loaded up with snacks, got all my entertainment supplies, and even brought my favourite duvet with me so all’s good.
