Firstly I want to say a huge thank you to all of you who replied to my post recently looking for advice. You are all amazing & so helpful. Your suggestion & help were all taken on board.
Well I had a phone appointment with my GP as planned after putting in a complaint regarding not being able to access antibiotics for 5 days whilst waiting on the results of a PCR test then once seen by a paramedic at our surgery it was an infection so given 14 days of Amoxicillin. He agreed that there should be something on my notes regarding access to quicker treatment if necessary & has put a note on my records & maybe I could be seen in the car park if this situation occurs again (erm not too sure about that in 4 degrees) He has prescribed Doxycycline too so I can start that immediately I have symptoms. I had looked at my NHS app for results of my sputum test but could only find an AAFB result I asked him why they had tested for TB he had no idea I asked if a culture had been requested he said he didn’t think so! So that was a waste of time apart from knowing I don’t have TB! I touched lightly on seeing a Bronchiectasis specialist but his suggestion was to wait & see what Respiratory consultant says at my next appointment. Well I havnt been seen in 2 years. Not much help there then. I didn’t expect any tbh. Afterwards I rang the nearest hospital with a Bronchiectasis specialist & was lucky enough to speak to someone in a CF clinic where Bronchiectasis patients are seen. She was really helpful & has suggested I contact my current consultant with regards to being seen there & possibly transferred if appropriate. So at least I have some things sorted but it looks like I will need to be the main person to try to arrange an appointment. Thanks again for all your input.
