Thank you for your input. I will consult with the pulm specialist as well as the ENT and allergist. Imm therapy was suggested for the allergies, but I have been on the fence with it because there is not guarantee that it will help according to the allergist.
I'm afraid of antibitotics as due to the serum sickness. Right now, I'm not supposed to take Levoquin, Zpack, Vicodin, Sulfa, Augmentin.
What would be safe for me to take?
As for sinus surgery, the ENT (my second opinion) doesn't feel we've exhausted all options yet and doesn't feel the surgery would help at this point. She wants to try other options.
My pulm function did show minor pulm disease which the pulm Dr said was due to the bronchitis and the test did not show any signs of asthma at that time. So I believe asthma has been ruled out.
As for post nasal drip, I have had that all my life. It is better with the steroidal nasal spray but is still slightly there.
Can some people really take months to recover from Bronchitis (non smoker, otherwise healthy, etc.)? While this is the exception and not the norm, is it really possible to take 5 -6 months to recover?
The ENT, Allergist and Pulm all agree the allergies are aggravating things...creating a cycle. I just want to stop the cycle.
