@bibes You really need a sputem test done along with a suseptibility test. Insist on it. It should be determined how colonized your lungs are, and with what specie(s), and which antibiotics will combat it. If your dr doesn't think those things are important, then I would guess that they might be a little clueless about how to treat this disease.

I think many pulmonologist are clueless when it comes to BX. I had to demand sputum cultures and then when Dx with Mac and several bacteria’s, he tells me the cure is worse than the Desease. Finally, when a cat scan identified BX ordered from a cardiologist, he passes me to an ID. I now have my first white sputum in 3 yrs
