Sorry you are feeling so unwell Bundle.
Glad you have started taking your emergency abs but wonder did you put in a sample before you started them? Two reasons this is useful 1. If the bugs are not sensitive to the emerg abs you and your doc will know from you results what your bugs are sensitive to. 2. It is useful for your consultant and gp to see what your pattern of infection is.
Do you have a respiratory consultant for your bronchiectasis Bundle? I wondered if it was your resp cons who put you on propylactic Azithromycin and which doctor decided to take you off them and the reason why?
If you haven't got a respiratory consultant Bundle you really should have a referal to one. You say you only have mild bronchiectasis. No matter if it is mild or severe, we all have to work to the same end that is to prevent further damage to our lungs. Most bronchiectatics, but not all cough up lots of mucus of varying colours every day and it is very important that we do physio every day to get rid of the gunk before it becomes infected. Your consultant should refer you to a physio to learn mucus clearing techniques.
Re the blood - if it is just streaky and you have been coughing a lot it could be a little vesel. However if it is unusual for you, you might want to visit your gp.
If you haven't got a consultant please get referred - it's very important for you your bronchiectasis stays mild.
Hope you feel better soon.
