Just got the results back re: sputum sample that I sent to National Jewish. Sputum grew mycobacterium abscessus (5 colonies-small amount) and they will not be treating at this time. Diagnosed with MAI so was surprised at these results. Anyone else have this experience and/or can help me not to be alarmed.
