@flib I feel for you! In 2015 I lost 40 lbs in 3 months. I changed doctors. He took me off the Big 3 and I have gained back 20 lbs. and of April, 2019, I am MAC free.
For me the treatment was worse than the disease!
Get a second opinion!

@janovr Thank you. I was only ever on one antibiotic and got off it because of hearing loss. Both my doctors have suggested not doing the antibiotics and I'm glad I didn't. I'm nebulizing saline which is helpful. I've had the disease for ten years and it's beginning to show. I'm glad you are MAC free. That was a lot of weight in a short period of time. Golly. Flib
