Hi, I am a newbie here. I had a CT scan following an unexpected bout of pneumonia in May. I got a results letter 2 weeks ago saying I have "a small amount of bronchiectasis" and that I'll be sent to a chest clinic for a full discussion and review. The appointment for that hasn't come through yet so I feel like I've been left in limbo. I have developed a cold in recent days and I'm afraid of it developing into a chest infection because I don't really know what to do. I haven't fully recovered from the pneumonia as soon after I left hospital my 3 kids took chicken pox one after the other and I haven't had the chance to rest. I'm exhausted and short of breath and I don't have anyone to talk to who understands. Nobody has even heard of bronchiectasis, I know I hadn't either until I got the letter.
