Hoes, sinus, longe

Ek kry elke jaar vir die laaste 5 jaar tenminste 3 keer per jaar brongitus of longontsteking, dan word ek opgeneem in die hospitaal vir behandeling deur internisse en long dokters en na ten minste 2 weke eers ontslaan. Die langste was 35 dae. Gedurende daardie tye kry ek 3 tot 4 antibiotikas, innalasies, fisio ens.

Ek rook nie, en kyk mooi na myself maar sodra iemand om my 'n snuffel het dan kry ek die virus of iets, raak siek en suffer.

Laaste keer is ek op Chroniese medikasie gesit. Kortisone, setitide pompie en duovent, analasies, Methotrexate. Dit het goed gegaan vir 14 maande en toe skuif my werk my naby'n aircon in en na 1 maand was ek weer in die hospitaal met longontsteking vir 3 weke. En dan asg van al die medikasie kry ek strep infeksies en maagswere ens. Aaklige kringloop.

Wat stel jy voor want ek HAAT medikasie en wil nie daarop wees nie. ASB gee raad.

Liewe Ekke
dit klink vir my of jy dalk onderliggende chroniese bronchitis/asma het wat jou meer vatbaar maak vir infeksies.Ek dink jy moet defnitief die inentings teen griep en longonsteking gereeld kry, neem 'n immuun stimulant soos Immunochoice, Moducare of Echinacea, besoek jou fisio sodra die eerste tekens van 'n infeksie sy kop uitsteek. Chroniese bronchitis word baie keer veroorsaak deur onderliggende allergies of longskade en is 'n proses wat nie net infeksie het nie, maar ook inflammasie, oormatige slymproduksie en kortasemheid.
Dis belangrik dat jy jou pompies baie gereeld gebruik. Laat jou dokter 'n brief skryf aan die werk dat hulle jou moet plaas waar die temperatuur meer konstant is en jy nie blootgestel word aan rook of chemiese gasse nie.

Have you seen an ENT specialist or pulminologist? It sounds as if your sinus troubles might be causing all your chest/lung problems. If this is the case you should (if you haven't already had one) have a sinus scan to see if your sinuses are in fact causing all your problems. I know how maddenning you must be feeling! I had chronic sinus trouble for years and years and years and eventually last year I got the hell in and said to my gp he must send me to an ENT specialist. I was sick in July with bad chest and sinus and throat infections, got antibiotic treatment and a cortisone injection, got better and 2 weeks later was sick again. I had 3 lots of antibiotics in 3 weeks. I went to the ENT in Aug last year and he initially diagnosed only a post-nasal drip and acid reflux problem which was making my throat soo sore. He gave me medication to treat it but said that if I had further sinus trouble I must phone and he would send me for a sinus scan. This happened in mid-Oct last year and I went for the scan. It showed that I had such badly infected sinuses and I had to have sinus surgery. None of these problems ever showed up on my sinus x-rays that I have had over the many years - this is why specialists sometimes send you for scans if the same problems continue to occur, as things can be missed on ordinary x-rays.

You would not believe the difference since having my sinus op! I can breathe better! I have had one bout of chest/throat infection last month, but it had nothing to do with my sinuses at all and I definitely feel so much better since having the op. Maybe you need to have a sinus scan or see a pulminologist or ENT.

Good luck.
