I have been sick since my birthday, so 2 weeks now. I tried oral antibiotics which didn’t help. I threw in the towel and called my nurse to get IVs started. I had a “sick visit” today since they wanted to see me and get lung functions done. My FEV1 was down a bit to .91L/33% (last time was 36%). I’m having more shortness of breath, fatigue and cough. It’s been a long 2 weeks of being sick and not feeling good. After seeing the doctor I went to the infusion lab and got my port accessed and had labs drawn. Now I’m just waiting for meds to be delivered so I can get started. I’ll be on IV Zosyn every 6 hours for 2 weeks. Hopefully 2 weeks is all I need. I think that’s all.
Until next time…
One thought on “IV antibiotic time”
Sorry to hear that, I’m almost about to throw in the towel myself, sending love from one cf patient to another!
