Hi! I am worried sick! My daughter is very sick. Had strep 2 weeks ago & been sick off & on since. Started coughing up green stuff Sunday.
Saw a DR Monday (Actually drs were full - she saw a nurse practicioner);
I wanted antibiotic for her-refused. Told her I'd be calling her by Thursday.
Called the DR yesterday, took her in....DR thought her lungs sounded like she had a combination of pneumonia & bronchitis.
Sent us for chest xray.
Back to DR. Xray shows no pneumonia or bronchitis but shows lots of mucus in her lungs.
She is VERY sick. Dr. gave her an inhaler & wants to listen to her lungs tomorrow. Still no antibiotics.
I'm not one to push them unless they are necessary but my question is HOW CAN THEY BE POSITIVE they aren't necessary in this case?
I believe an antibiotic on Monday would have prevented this illness from getting so severe. I am furious!
What do you think and what could be other lung disease mucus causes?
Thanks to all!
