Customer reply replied 8 months ago

Urologist: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 8 months ago

Well unfortunately it doesnt sound too great. We need few investigations meanwhile start treating it as probable bronchitis keeping in view your smoking history.

You need to take steam regularly to open up your airways, may be use menthol in water for steam.

You should be using bronchodilators e.g salbutamol or salmeterol .

Continue using steroids for now in the dose advised.

Take antiallergic as benadryl or cetirizine.

Cough syrup available OTC should also be used.

Tylenol or acetaminophen for fever.

what does this mean? I have been on all types of meds but its just suppressing the symptoms... i want a cure.. i want this all to stop so i can get on with my life... my life has been turned 360 degrees upside down since february
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
i took antibiotics 3 different types for 40 days
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
i have sent u the video
Urologist: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 8 months ago

Yes i can imagine it must be very frustrating. If its not improving with all these measures then ideally you should have your sputum microscopy and culture done so that we find out the exact bacteria involved and which drug its sensitive too, both very important

i have done all that.. i have had 2 bronchialscopies.. and the last one i did they did a bioscopie
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
But cortisone is causing me enorm weight gain my hair is falling
Codein is turning me into a zombie
The symptoms are not improving
The pain in my stomach is worse.. i have constant heartburn and acidity
Its 5 in the morning here i have been coughing since 2 in the morning.. this is no quality of life
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
were u able to take a look at the video
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
They put me on Tavanac after the bronchialscopie
Urologist: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 8 months ago

Yes i know it can be terrible gping through all this. But we need steroids here. You need to take antacid like omeprazole to protect your stomach while on steroids.

Yes i saw your video ,its very bad obviously. Treatment includes frequent ventolin / salbutamol + ipratropium nebulization.

Continue steroids.

Use steam. Reduce codeine .

You need to have your oxygen %age guaged with pulsoximeter too, any impending failure should be dealt with aggressively.

Tavanac is a good choice . Stick to it.

Nebulize frequently as you can. Steam too

But what does this mean for me? when is this all going to stop? or am i chronically ill?
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
after tavanac i went on holiday and this didnt get better and i had to be injected every day as shown on the photo

My blood work now shows no infection
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Are u there?
Urologist: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 8 months ago

Well it tells you oxygen concentration in your blood so if its low then other means of oxygen support and ventilation should be used iin inpatient at hospital.

Right now you need to use all those measures i mentioned above.

I want to know if i am chronically ill
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
if this is going to all stop or if i have to live like this being pumped up full with all sorts of medication.. inhalers.. ect
Urologist: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 8 months ago

No this isnt chronic illness . It seems more of an attack of acute bronchitis thats common in smokers. Treatment options are as mentioned above .

Your antibiotics are perfect that you are given. Salbutamol , ipratropium nebules come with this generic name ,trade names may differ but pharmacists would know.

Yes but its steroid once again. I will suggest salbutamoland ipratropium as you are already on oral steroids

which is my oral steroids?
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
is there nothing stronger than omeprazol for the stomach i take it everyday its not helping at all
Urologist: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 8 months ago

I thought you were referring to oral steroids above , with codeine.

If you are not on oral steroids then continue these inhalers, add salbutamol and ipratropium too.

What dose do you take for omeprazole

Ask Your Own Urology Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
40 omeprazole
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
now i am taking 60mg dexilant instead.. still no improvement
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
could my lung problem have to do with my stomach GERD related?
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I have this from Italy i use it on very bad nights where i cant seem to get the coughing to stop no matter what i do
Urologist: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 8 months ago

These are all steroids you are on. You need to use either inhalers or oral steroids. Your lung issue is unrelated to GERD.

Take 40 mg omeprazole twice a day . You need to take it 30 minutes before you take your meals or medication

Ask Your Own Urology Question
Urologist: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 8 months ago

You need ;

Steam

Steroids oral tablets ( prednisone) if inhaler isnt working.. if oral fail then next step should be IV

Salbutamol / ipratropium inhalers or nebulization

Antibiotics i,e leflox

Benadryl

Acetaminophen

Omeprazole 40 mg twice daily -if not working add ranitidine

Cough syrup.

Avoid smoking.

I hope you feel better soon.

Plz let me know if you have any further queries.
