    Hi, HearMeRoar! I am catching up on some old WhatNext e-mails. Do you still have your cough? How are you? Thinking of you.

      I agree that if it doesn't get better call and see the Dr again. As a repeat bronchitis suffer I know that it takes awhile for the meds to kick in. I'm surprised that you didn't get antibiotics I usual get a Z-pack, some times I need to courses of treatment. Generally speaking if it is caused by a post nasal drip, it's bacterial not viral.

      Luckily, I've not had anything since June, '16 when diagnosed. Then I had pneumonia. I really watch/pamper myself. I push myself to get better knowing that in a heart beat I can be real sick. I also have a cough, but nothing what you describe. My cough is probably from allergies & the air quality in the Ohio Valley.

      You might ask for a culture to see if it is bacterial or viral. Always, ask questions. It never hurts.

      I'm 4 yr post treatment, but in the 1st yr a dry cough progressed to mainly early morning w being so hard, I'd gag to the point of vomiting. X-rays con't to show nothing.
      Dr. heard wheezing later & was dx with reactive airway disorder(asthma). Inhaler helped a little, but it wasn't until I switched to letrozele that I noticed cough stopped within days. I had been on a different hormone blocker(don't remember what), but switched bc of other side effects. Don't know if related to cough, but no cough since.
