@lampstone Pam, when I had pseudomonas that didn't residence to levaquin and doxy, my pulmonologist finally prescribed a month of nebulized Tobramycin, that finally kicked it. As for the failure of the antibiotics, did they do sensitivity testing on the specimens? Your appointment with Mayo is a great next step. Good luck.

I have been seeing Mayo pulmonologist for about 5 years. She gave me the 1-year holiday off meds since I was down to one colony. Now that everything is back plus the continuous pseudomonas I am looking forward to seeing her again. I trust her. The sensitivities were done in mid May. So guess I will know soon.🙏🏼

For increased airway clearance you may check with your Dr about increasing to 7% saline “2“x/d—from only 1 time —it really helps me with less infections.

Yes. They have done the sensitivity testing over the last couple months from my appointment in May. I will find out the treatment plan tomorrow. Thanks.
