I knew that one day the oral antibiotics would stop working on my pseudomonas and I would have to go into hospital for iv antibiotics. I got a phone call from the hospital consultant today to say I have to go in on Wednesday for the iv treatment as my sputum sample showed it was colonised and that ciprofloxacin didn’t work anymore. I have to go in for 7-10 days, which I am not looking forward to, I have been so well for the longest time this year and have been able to do so much which hasn’t happened for about 7 years. I started to feel unwell yesterday whilst we were away at the weekend, all my family and I went to a surprise 60th party.
I am grateful for a bit of time out from being unwell and I know I’m going to be so bored in there so if possible I will read and do crosswords. The doctor said this is it now whenever I have a flare up straight in hospital. He said I will have to take carbocisteine to help loosen up the mucus and maybe when I come out of hospital take Azithromycin. My question is is this normal treatment for Bronchiectasis with pseudomonas? Maybe it is a how long is a bit of string question but I like to be prepared. I would be grateful for any answers any of you can give 😊 xx
