I have COPD and Bronchiectasis,I am under the Consultant at the Hospital who,after looking at my CT Scan results said he was not concerned about my COPD as it was very mild.
I have had all the symptoms of a chest infection for the past 4 weeks,and I have been into hospital for tests.
No infection was found,but I was told my tubes are inflamed and they gave me Steroids,which have now finished.
I had to go to my GP last Tuesday I was vety ill,and I was immediately put on Amoxicillin 500 3 times a day.
Today,Saturday I am starting to feel a bit better,but the constant coughing trying to get the mucus up is really worrying.
It is not coloured anymore,so I presume the infection has gone,but 2 questions.
How long can I keep coughing up stuff.
I was given Azithromycin at the Hospital,I had 1 last Wednesday,1 on Friday.
Will these help,and how long do they take to have a noticeable effect.
Sorry for the essay
