I rarely get sick. I caught a cold or flu six weeks ago. After 2 weeks of feeling crappy I went to a 'drive through' clinic. I was prescribed antibiotics and did feel someonewhat better. The man I had dated for the past year but do not see often also came down with flulike symtoms. He has Always had a cough (he smokes And drinks heavily - no drugs) He went for a checkup and after his chest X-ray was sent back to his doctor. The doctor told him that he was Sure he had TB! That there was a Cavity in his lung. His doctor was going to put him in the hospital but my friend Promised he would not leave home and if he did he would wear a mask. He did Not keep his promise. He is on four prescriptions, 3 are for treatment of TB and one is vitamin B-6 50 MG. His TB tests came back negative. I had a chest X-ray and skin test, both OK. I received more antibotics but I am still coughing up yellow. He had a CAT scan last week along with another test where they put him under. I am worried. He continued to drink and smoke during this time and did cough around me and everyone else! I have already had major surgury because of him and got genital Herpes from His Mouth. We have not had intercourse. Needless to say I am not Seeing him Again but what could be up with me? He is not likely to tell me the truth.
