Heavy growth of Haemophilus influenzae
Good morning. I've been ill recently and after several visits to my Primary and different meds, finally ended up at my pulmonary who did a sputum culture. The culture showed "Heavy growth of Haemophilus influenzae" which isn't the flu but bacteria. He wrote that the Levaquin he prescribed should take care of it. They also did a chest xray in the beginning which did not show pneumonia and my chest sounded okay at last doctor visit. I have a constant cough that is no longer productive and am still not feeling well after 2 weeks. I've Googled the bacteria but the results are not clear to me. Has anyone else had this and is it anything to worry about or just a bug? Thanks in advance. My daughter and grandchildren were all sick also although they have recovered.
