Out Of Hospital !!

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.

Take it easy, don't be doing too much too soon. Glad your out of the madhouse!! xx

Thats great so glad you are feeling better. Take care of yourself :)

Interesting to know that since being taken off Inhalers, your breathlessness has benefited. I'm Convinced that the Powder type inhalers ( I've had 4 different ones ) have made my breathlessnes WORSE ! I've now refused to use them any more! Doctors are sceptical, but they aren't the ones who are suffering. I'm still on 2 Aerosol type inhalers , but again not convinced they achieve anything. Which type of Inhaler were you prescribed?

It was yesterday I came across this site - so glad I did. Good to read about COPD from the sufferer's viewpoint.

Best to all - Phil
