Big 3 and weight loss

@erawl Hi there. Please read through past posts on what others have done to combat weight loss. There are all kinds of ways to bump up calorie intake. My weight cameback on after I tested negative for all lung infection. Pseudomonas was the culprit of my weight loss. This is a common bug that we, with mac and bronchiectasis contract. Be sure to get regular sputem tests for that too.

I have a question that perhaps you can help me with. I had a sputum test last fall and two of the three tests came back with positive results and my doctor (whom I like and respect a good deal) described the cultures as some kind of bacteria that acts as a colonizer and is not a mycobacterium that requires antibiotics. He asked me to return to twice daily respiratory therapy (which I’m doing) but I don’t really understand the difference between all the terms that get discussed on this forum. I guess what I’m asking do you think a wait and see approach with what I’m doing is best or do you think I should pursue further? Although I wouldn’t really know what to pursue. I am not actively sick -I’m working- but have a good deal of fatigue. Thx for listening to this ramble😜
