@windwalker Hi, I hope you can advise me please. In the first 6 months of this year I was ill with lots of symptoms, lots of coughing and large amount of phlegm, weight loss, fatigue etc. I had +ve sputum cultures for mycobacterium chimaera in 3 out of four samples. My CT scan showed a very small nodule (5mm) and my lungs have no scarring or signs of damage or bronchiectasis. I have a repeat CT scan scheduled in Jan 2020.
I am feeling much better though in the last two months. The thing is my only symptom now is a dry persistent cough and I don’t produce any phlegm.
My last appointment with my respiratory consultants in November would have been an assessment to see whether I need to start the long term antibiotics treatment. They say since my symptoms have improved they would advise to put that on hold until a review after my next CT scan.
Is the symptoms I described normal? I’m still coughing persistently. Should I be worried? I have asthma but it has been under control for 20 years and I have not had the need to use my inhalers very often. I’m not wheezing and not breathless. Thank you everyone for an excellent site. Very glad I’m connected here. All best wishes to all of you.
