I am so grateful for this helpful compilation. I remember Kathryn but did not remember that she had abscessus. Every time I say "phooey" I think of her. These replies have lessened my fear and anxiety significantly. Reading that I grew out abscessus other than MAI had me in quite a tailspin. Thank you.
Forgot to ask @sueinmn: did the different mycobacteria's numbers stay small; did they disappear completely, or grow larger? Did the doctor say what some of the reasons for the positive cultures were? Thank you both again.
