Hope you are soon feeling better,seems to be a lot of colds around at moment I myself have had the cold from hell for the last fortnight and I still feel like rubbish, so very tiring.Gp said no antibiotics for virus,they dont seem to like to give them nowadays,still I hope you get sorted and good luck with upcoming check up. x

Maybe try Neil Med rinses as that will help clear the sinuses. If you are on Avastin that does make colds seem worse. The rinses and bottle can be bought in Boots or any chemist

I cannot recommend Neil med enough either. Has really helped the mucky nose avastin gives me. I think it's reduced my hayfever too and that's a real benefit with no nasal hair.
