Re: Nicole Dehuff
I agree, insist on the xrays. Out of all the times I have been to the doc and ER for lung problems, maybe once or twice they did the chest xray. Once I took my son in for breathing issues (he doesn't have asthma) and the ER let us go saying it was a cold and to follow up with the doc in a few days. I went the next day knowing they were wrong and sure enough it was pneumonia. His doc was MAD. (We have an awesome pediatrician.) He couldn't believe they missed it. Not to mention he was only like 6 months old at the time and a preemie so he was mad they did not take the time to check his chest thoroughly.
Anyway, I will be heading back to the doc myself soon. This cough is not going away and I am still coughing up yellow goo after the round of antibiotics. I have 4 kids and I can't keep up with them all being sick all the time. I have to rely on my stupid inhalers to be able to cough the stuff out and it is just not going away.
