Hi all Thanks for your kind wishes , still in hospital and they still can't bottom this . They have stopped the steroids , so I get a build up of fluid to be able to get a sample . They seem to think I have two infections running together, that's why I've been like this for three and a half months , they are giving me Diclofenac , and an oral gel as I now have thrush in my mouth from the inhalers . The heart scan came back fine , the auto-immune disease is non existent , sending me for skin tests and vat tests . On a 6 bed ward so able to chat with people who have C.O.P.D . And other breathing problems .. Will keep you all posted !!
