Should I take Big 3 + inhaled ARIKAYCE

MAC may be hard to treat but the antibiotics and the inhaled Arikayce are key in keeping it at bay. I had a 10 cm cavity and the treatment combination shrunk it to 4 cm. I'd be more concerned about NOT doing any of the treatments.

Thanks a lot for Sharing your information. My concern is that even if my MAC will be cured, I will develop other infections, different strains, which happens to some other patients as well. The reason is long term use of antibiotics weakens the immunity system. So I am thinking of adding more weight to make myself stronger before I start the antibiotics.

Is there any success case for long term fully cured patients with both cavity and nodule ?
How do you manage it?

Thanks a lot.
