I have pseudomonas again or still. I had it in 2019 but it disappeared while I was on Arikayce. However it's been back in my lungs again since this summer. My doctor said that we will discuss treating it when I have more and am sick. I don't know about having more because the results reports say that I have many. She has more details re exactly how much there is. My main symptom is copious amounts of mucus, 2-3x more than usual. I am
doing airway clearance 2x daily.
I have an appointment scheduled for the end of the month. My pseudomonas is susceptible to all the various antibiotics used for this bacteria.
Should I push for treatment? I know some of you have been treated for this bacteria and I did a search of the discussions but I really would appreciate an opinion as to whether I should start treatment. I would prefer an inhaled drug because my gut is still recovering from the MAC antibiotics that I stopped more than 6 months ago. I would be grateful for input from anyone who has been treated for pseudomonas.
