    Hello Jeannie4243' I'm really interested in your post concerning your husband and his pseudomonas bug, my husband has also contracted this nasty bug and has been in hospital again with this nasty bacteria. I wondered what treatment your husband has received, how long he has had it, in fact any info you have would be brilliant. I hope he's well at the moment. Many thanks Sue.

      Hello Susan yes psudamonas is a nasty bug. i will tell you what consultant suggested but do not have correct spellings for meds. He suggested Clarithomysen 1 tablet on Monday 1x Wednesday and 1 x Friday but Joe is allergic to this antibiotic so never took that, so they put him on nebulised colomycin 2 million mixed with sodium saline. He inhales that twice a day. In May 2014 he was in intensive care, and really since then has been in and out of hospital for a year with psudamonas and other infections. This Tuesday i will have had him home 8 weeks and he is not doing to bad, but i never really relax.  I must say i have wonderful support from our G.P. res nurse and consultant. hope that helps good luck let me know how you get on

    Hello Jeannie, many thanks for your reply. My husband already takes Clarythomycin, he also has TB, twice he has had it now, god knows where he picked it up from, maybe hospital ? He is one week into nebulised Colomycin, did your husband have a challenge test before he had Colomycin ? I have seen a big deteriation in my husband mainly since Xmas, he has had 4 admissions this year, only returning home again last Thursday. Like you I'm very nervous of what may lie ahead. I never seem to switch off from it.life is very different now. I'm so hoping the Colomycin will dampen the Pseudonomas down as I beleive it cannot be eradicated. Therefore giving him a little more quality of life. Can I ask if you have any hints that may help, although in honesty probably tried them all. May I ask your husbands age and how long he has suffered. Many thanks, I hope I'm not being to intrusive. Sue x
