CT Scan

Started on May 1st 2011, I had problem with my lung. The condition was gradually improved. On May 15th 2011, I went for swimming.
On May 16th 2011, I feel same symptoms like on May 1st 2011, even more severe, I was not able lie on a mattress and fever 37.5 until 38.6.

On May 17th 2011, I went to doctor and he asked me to do X-Ray on my Left Chest.
He gave me:
1. Amoxicilin 625MG, 2 times a day.
2. Arcoxia 120MG, once a day.
3. Orphenagrine 35MG, 2 to be taken 3 times a day.
4. Ibuprofen, 200MG,  2 to be taken 3 times a day.

On May 19th 2011, I did X-Ray @ Ang Mo Kio Polyclinic and I got the result on May 21th 2011. The doctor ask me to see Specialist.

On May 21th 2011, I went to Raffles Hospital, Dr Steve Yang asked me to do a CT scan. This is the result.

Dr Steve Yang give me:
1. AUGMENTIN 1MG, 2 times a day.
2. Ibuprofen 200MG, 1 TAB 6 hourly.
and asked me to do Antibiotic therapy and Video-Assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery (VATS).

Started on May 26th 2011, I did Antibiotic therapy.
1. every 12 pm and 12 am, Dr Erwin Arief gave me MEROPENEM - INJECTION.
2. and Flagyl every 8 hours, 3 times a day.

Dr Erwin Arief stoped MEROPENEM - INJECTION on June 1st 2011, and change to LEVOFLOXACIN 500 mg (2 times a day). I still continue with Flagyl 3 times a day.

Started on June 3rd 2011, they ask me to change LEVOFLOXACIN dose.
1. LEVOFLOXACIN 500 mg once a day.
2. TROGYL, Metronidazole 500 mg once a day.

On June 7th 2011, Dr Steve Yang asked me to do CT scan again. Alhamdulillah, it show significant improvement and doctor said, I did not need to do a VATS.
Started on June 7th 2011, I just need to continue LEVOFLOXACIN 750 mg once a day and stop TROGYL, Metronidazole .
