It has been 12 months since my daughter has had reoccurring Pneumonia/chest infections shes had 20+ antibiotics, at least 10 or more X-Rays. But only last month further testing has been carried out for Cystic Fibrosis and TB. Well sweat test came back fine but two weeks ago my daughter had the mantoux test for TB which she reacted to so might have TB. Well TB is contagious as we all know and no one that I know has had TB in past year so don't know who she could have caught it off if she does have it. Two weeks I have been ringing up the hospital worried sick for my 2 year old daughter that has spent a whole year on antibiotics but still unwell, in these two weeks I have been hearing same thing the doctor that is in her care works on wards as well as outpatients, well this isn't good enough if my child might have TB! There should be separate doctors for wards and separate doctors for outpatients!!!
