No More Bronchiectasis -- Is It Possible?

How great that your lungs were clear. I too read the book on Beating Bronchiecstasis and I see it is possible, whether in the short or long term. It is something to work towards. Everyone knows the saying “hope springs eternal”!

I’m interested in nebulizing with 7% saline twice a day. It took me some time to get used to 7% after using 3%. Are others doing this – using the nebulizer a day with 7%?

Thanks,

Kathy, I am, and my impression is that at least several other members also do.

I have nebulized 1-2 times daily with albuterol and 7% saline since being diagnosed with bronchiectasis in 2017. I have only had one small infection that required a ten day round of antibiotics, thus far. I have never used a lesser amount of saline, so I think it is very effective overall.

@kathyhg I have been nebulizing with 7% saline since 2013. My mac tested negative by 2014. (Dx with mac in 2005) It wasn't the saline alone (I don't think) but was in conjunction of an antibiotic treatment plan. (Can click on my photo icon and read about that). Nebulizing the 7% saline is just good lung hygiene, unless you have something really severe going on in your lungs like lots of cavities.
