Hospitalized with Pneumonia.

Posted by @luvocean, Jul 9, 2017

I got home yesterday but spent 3 days and 2 nights in the hospital with pneumonia. I normally have
pseudomonas pneumonia but don’t know what the sputum sample will show. I was once diagnosed with Myco-
bacterium in February but the following April it did not show in my sputum. I was on the Z pack and methopredni
solone and after IVs in hospital on Rocefin and Azithromycin . Now I’m home and back on the zpack and metho again.
The Dr. saw a mass on a CT on my left lower lung in the back. In previous scans they saw streaks that they thought was
an area where I wasn’t breathing deep enough but now it shows as a wedge shape so my pulmonologist ordered a needle
biopsy as soon as I am well. I am hoping and praying it is almost anything but than cancer

@luvocean .. Connie you have been on our MAC/Bronchiectasis Forum for a while so you know a bit of what is going on. PLEASE keep us posted on what you find out so we can let you know what we would do if we were sitting in your shoes .. so much depends on what you find out from your doctors. BUT I will BET it is NOT cancer! Much more likely it is MAC. Let us know the results .. we are pulling for you and sending you LOTS of positive energy AND Big Hugs! Katherine (and come back IF we can help any further BEFORE the results come back!)
