@cathin Some doctors treat, others do not. I have found that interesting. Down south (ex.Tennessee) they prefer to always treat. Up north many prefer to watch and wait until it is absolutely necessary to treat. It is important to find an ID doctor who is very familiar with MAC and watches/monitors the progression of your disease closely. (@irene5)

Thank you Irene5, When I had Kansasii and Abcsessus, I went back and forth to National Jewish in Denver. The ID doctor I had for all that time was here, I went every week, for 2 years. For reasons in family, he moved to North Carolina. He has returned, and is now my Primary doctor. Long story on his part, but he has kept his ID license and I see him every 3 months. He is amazingly thourough, and I trust him with my life. He says not to treat. I am doing ok. Now I have this pulmonary hypertension, that is a worry. I am having so much trouble doing the 3 sputum, third tomorrow. I'm sure it is still lurking there. My new worry is the hypertension.
