Diagnosis Of Bronchopneumonia But Not Natural Symptoms Of Cough?
Good morning. I want to ask 2 weeks ago I was treated initially for typoid and after the X-ray X-ray results showed bronchopneumonia but I had no symptoms of cough at all. But once in a while I often get pain in my front chest and backbone. How do I deal with this problem that I experience? Thank you.
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Bronchopneumonia is a type of pneumonia or pneumonia. This inflammation can be caused by viruses, bacteria, fungi, parasites, or it could be due to smoking, choking on fluids, stomach acid that rises and enters the respiratory system, alcohol consumption, and immune system disorders.
Regarding your question, cough is actually one of the most common symptoms that can be found in bronchopneumonia, bronchitis or pneumonia. This is easily understood because the complaints occur in the respiratory system, and the cough itself is a reflex that exists in the respiratory system that arises when there is foreign matter such as mucus, dust or other particles.
So our guess is that you might have an X-ray that tends towards bronchopneumonia, but it's been a long time and it's not your problem now. Because after all, supporting examination is not the determinant of everything. As the name implies, investigations are carried out to support the possibility of certain diagnoses that have been predicted by the doctor beforehand. So if you are considered to have certain diseases through a supporting examination but not so from the results of a doctor's examination, the results of the supporting examination may not be used.
While complaints of back pain and front of the breastbone that you experience can occur due to various things, but apart from that, what you can do now is to check yourself with a lung doctor, especially if your doctor was not a lung doctor before. You must confirm the conclusions of the doctor who examined you beforehand on the pulmonary doctor, which is more skilled at lung disorders. If indeed your doctor was a lung doctor before, then you should take the therapy he gave because after all, he is checking you directly and not us. If your condition does not improve, return to do an evaluation and ask what you can expect, such as how long you have to undergo treatment like this, why your condition does not improve and whether you need collaboration with other doctors to treat your condition.
If your doctor does not provide clarity, you have the right to ask a second opinion from another lung doctor, which if the answer is more or less the same, then that is the process that you must go through. Meanwhile, avoid stress, cigarette smoke, multiply the consumption of water, avoid oily and fatty foods, adequate rest, and regular exercise. So, hopefully answering your question.
