I appreciate your concerns.
Bronchectasis is the dilatation of airways following an infection. The best treatment is to do a postural drainage
. This is normally picked up on CT scan
and a bronchoscopy
is not needed. However if done, the bronchoscopy also shows the dilated airways (you say that it was normal?).
The name of the organism is steptococcus pneumoniae (and not pneumonia). Please do not confuse. The antibiotics of 1 week is normally sufficient. Your sore mouth and low energy may also be because of prolonged antibiotics!
You are unlikely to spread the infection. I suggest a CT scan (to rule out bronchiectasis
), start postural drainage, get your WBC count
done to confirm cure of infection... and then stop antibiotics.
For your sleep apnoea, you can use a home CPAP machine till your splints get repaired.
