Hi Sylvi, so sorry to hear you have another infection. sometimes that does happen when one infection doesn't clear up properly and flares up again.

I do hope the new tablets will do the trick. Plenty of rest, peace and quiet and let others wait on you as well. Love LavendarLady x

LL they have been doing that already,they keep telling me to rest all the time. Resting is driving me crazy. This is just another thing i have to go through. Hopefully by the time my operation comes round i should be clear of it.

Love sylvi.xx

Oh no Sylvi. You must be absolutely fed up with antibiotics.Youhave enough to deal with without more problems.

I read your post about sleep or lack of it.I've found that if I stay in bed my joints do stiffen and it takes me ages to get going again.I've found that if I wake I have to get up straight away and have a little walk round the bedroom.It seems to help but does mean I never have a lie in.

Hope things are better soon for you xxx

Hi Sylvia

Sorry to hear your news .You're certainly keep the drug industry in profit at the moment.Fingers crossed that your new drugs clear this up for you.Keep resting- i'm off work at the moment and i know what you mean about the boredom but you need to get well for the surgery.

Lots of love

Just wondered Sylvi, when was the last time they did a chest xray or sputumn test on you, so they check if the bug you have now now is the same pneumonia bug.

If not recently there is a slight possiblility it may be a different type of bug that these antibiotics do not treat? Good luck Axx

:) Hey good for you Allanah, not everybody realizes that. I meant to ask Sylvi if she had a different antibiotic or was it the same one, just more of it.

The thing is now, since she has been on antibiotics for so long, a culture and sensivity test might not grow anything, the antibiotics will prevent it from growing on the culture plates, despite it growing in the lungs. (I'm a microbiologist)

OK, Sylvi, how did they decide you had another infection? Chest x-ray or culture?? Have you had spikes of fever?. (yeah, we're playing doctor here) :)

I've already had a chest xray,that came back clear.He sounded my chest and i rattled,i'm asthmatic so that doesn't help. Thank you all for asking after me.

Love to all. Sylvi.xx
