Saw my GP last Monday and got a second lot of antibiotics, after a first batch (plus steroids) didn't clear my chest infection. He also gave me a request form to go and get a chest X-ray, if the cough didn't clear up by today. (I'd had another chesty cough 3 or 4 weeks before seeing him, which had been treated with steroids and had cleared up.)
The antibiotics have made a huge difference and the cough is all but gone, though there's still a slightly niggly occasional cough.
Should I still go for the chest X-ray?
I'm erring on the side of going anyway for a few reasons: to clarify that I've not got TB and/or cancer; because my mam thinks I should (she works in health); because I've never had an X-ray before; and because I want to see what my insides look like.
To chest X-ray or not to chest X-ray?
