Am I being too impatient I did go back to the doctor today they put me on Z Pack . Took x-rays of my lungs and said everything looked good Monday my oxygen level is between 92 and98. I also use a nebulizer two to three times a day!
Hope you are feeling better soon linda.
Hard to know if you are being too impatient, check with your doc if you feel no better.
The doc should advise you if you have a bad chest infection or pneumonia.
Dose in UK for chest infection of Pred is 6 x 10mg (60mg) for 5-7 days but only your doc can tell you why you are on the 40mg dose.
If your lungs are bad I guess the nebulizer will help.
Oxygen at 94 - 98 is pretty good. If you oxygen is at 92 % most of the time then your your doc should send you for further tests I think. Just my opinion I am not a doctor.
