Cardio or specialist physician? Possible infection...again!
So..here I sit 11 months post-implant of second PM (first removed due to staph epidermidise infection 6 years ago) feeling suspicious....and fed up.
I have not been feeling great for a good 6 months but do not do well with Doctors and make like an ostrich!
I finally went to my GP and was diagnosed with pleurisy just below the PM site. Have completed the full set of Augmentin bombs and still little relief, though pain is better. Still feel oxygenless and lethargic with chills and night sweats. Some aches and referred pain from the PM site but no redness, heat etc.
This feels so much like the last time...it took 9 months to get a diagnosis and I was constantly told it was all in my subconscious!
I have been waiting for all the specialists to get back from their holidays. Wondering if it would be best to see the specialist physician instead of the cardio as he was the one to push for a diagnosis the last time when the cardia was sure nothing was wrong.
