Hello Squad.
Went back to my G.P. over high b.p. still a bit high. More concerned over chest infection. Gave me Amoxcillian 500 mg 3xday. Ended up in hosp 6hrs. Done chest xray,bloods,ecg,temp etc. Doc in hosp sed no pneumonia but lungs are weak so she gave me a puffer for the brethlessness and steroids for 5 days 6 each morning after breakfast. Wants me to see a lung doc in a few weeks at hospital. Feelin a lot better now. ( Flu as well) Dont need to waste time the NHS have enough to deal with. Finish Prednisolone tomorrow and im feelin a lot stronger. Appointment has arrived yesterday to see another Doctor. Im OK do i need to waste more NHS time? Thanks Squad JPT xxxxx

What would I do OR what should you do? ;-)

I would finish my steroids and antibiotics and would call it a day at that point.
What should you do.......see the Consultant that has been arranged for a few weeks time, who will perform lung function tests and come to, hopefully, a diagnosis and a plan for the future.

I hope that makes sense to you.
