I am a university student during the middle of finals and got sick this week. I first went to my campus's medical clinic originally thinking I had strep throat. Based on the doctor's conclusion, I had a viral throat infection. Three days went by and it turned into a whooping cough. I went back to the clinic today and the doctor gave me antibiotics after I told him I coughed up some green gunk. The doctor said my lungs sounded clear. However the amount of pieces of lime green sticky mucus I have been coughing up has increased. My main concern is that I have pneumonia. I have been hospitalized for pneumonia three times and have received the vaccine. Because I have two implanted Neurostimulators, I have to be very careful and try prevent any bacteria from spreading into my leads
Are their some pictures of pneumonia mucus, so that I could compare know if I need to get additional help?
The clinic doctor on campus gave me Azithromycin 250 MG tabs. I had to take two today and for the next four days will take one tablet. If I do have pneumonia or etc, would this antibiotic fight it?
Sorry for the long post. I would appreciate your response very much.
