I was being seen in the lung department of an university hospital. I had complaints of an itching throat and much mucus all the time (without coughing). Only at the precise moment that I was lying down (but not while lying down), I got a severe coughing fit whit clear mucus stained with yellow drops. I had a history of 2 times haemoptisis.
The result of the lung function tests was that I had an excellent lung volume etc. The sputum test also didnot gave results. Nor the bloodtests. Therefore they assumed that it could be Astma or my stomach: I got prescribed Seretide and Panthozol. But this didnot help at all. After that they suggested bronchoscopy and a scopy of the stomach. This was not done because I refused because I had 2 very bad experiences with bronchoscopy.Several months later a Scan of the lungs was made (CTG). The radiologist diagnosed it as "radiation pneumonitis" , but the doctor said he saw bronchiectasis in the middle right part of the lung. Thereafter I was given during a few weeks a macrolide antibioticum: and the result was excellent: no more continuous sputum, no moe coughing. This condition was thus undignosed/wrongly diagnosed during about 4 years.
