Hi Everyone , I was released from hospital yesterday after spending 5 days there , I can not believe the change from when i first got admitted .I feel some much better no coughing or shortness of breath , will be back to work on monday . The Doctors have said i still have possibly two infections from the pluracy and pneumonia , and they have stopped giving me steroids so the fluid can now build up on my left lung , in a week or two they will send me for another CT scan and X-rays to make sure the fluid has returned , then they can do a plural effusion biopsy and take some fluid off for testing ! then start my treatment properly and finally after three and half months may be have a chance of clearing my infection .They have taken me off both my inhalers , and put me on diclofenic and paracetomol . which has stopped the pain and breathlessness .
Thank you all so much, so pleased i found this site it has been so helpful , and only hope my little blog will help some one else who has the same problems . Thank you as well for all the well wishes . would have replied in hospital but found it hard on my I-phone , much better replying from laptop.
Take Care everyone hope you are all feeling well , or getting the treatment you need xx
best wishes Mike.
