Hello all, I was being treated for asthma for eleven years with no improvement, after a visit to my GP two years ago I was given at last an apointment with a thoracic specialist, after blowing into the machine three times he told me I did not have asthma to my surprise and after a CT scan confirmed I had Bronchi.
Sputum sample indicated I had infection and I've had infections and atbiotics on and off like everyone else.I have never seen a physio or been told about P/drainage or how to clear my chest, I had to find out for myself from this group etc. I have no sprays or any other medication to help. I used to put a sputum sample in to my surgery and receive antibiotics accordingly, however following a telephone discusion with My GP she asked me how I felt and I said I feel well so she has stoped my antibiotic so basicaly I have to live with my chest infection as long as I feel ok and if I feel unwell to go back to the surgery, so my question is am I on my own i.e. receiving no treatment etc yet stil have an infection???
