I have had a chest infection since september last year probably due to/following major abdominal surgery last august. I have had 2 different courses of antibiotics. But the second time I saw gp I got the impression I was wasting time and felt like a hypochondriac when she said my chest sounded clear.I dont have any chest pain although I have a persistent cough and still coughing up phlegm. I always seem to have/get the cold easily for as long as I can remember ie blocked nose/pleghmy feeling. The reason I am asking if chest infections are contagious is that my OH has moderate copd and had a chest infection last week and I dont want to be passing this on to him. It just seems to be lingering in me but not getting any worse, should I go back to my gp again? any advice would be greatly appreciated thanks.
