Recurring Pneumonia/Spots on CT-HELP!
For the past three years I've had a chronic cough. I went to an allergy doctor, and was tested for allergies, and nothing.
For the last year and a half I've had pneumonia four times, the last two were double pneumonia. I had a CT scan done in October and they found vague cloudy patches on both of my lungs (scary). My pulmonologist doesn't think it's cancer, though they can't rule it our yet. I took Zithromax for three weeks in November when I had the double pneumonia, and the pre-existing cough went away, 100%. Now, four months later I am recovering again from double pneumonia (three more weeks of Zithromax), and now it's really getting scary.
The pulmonologist thinks I have a drug resistant bacterial infection, and I have to go for another CT, and bronchoscopy after I recover from this current bout.
Anyone experience anything like this? It's really unnerving. I am in my 40's, and have small children. My mind can't help but wander out to the dark side...
Any input would be appreciated!!
