I am feeling ok. Sputum a little more yellow than usual but that could mean a million things. The doctor said for me to send another sputum sample 3-4 months after I had sent this one. I was alarmed because it was abscessus. Thank you for sharing that you had different mycobacteria cultures in the past. By the way, doctor is Dr. Huitt from National Jewish. Better known as the "Queen of Mac". I see a local doctor as well.

I spent two weeks in January at NJH after testing positive at home for MAC and finding local doctors each had their own opinion on treatment plans for me. After an extremely thorough work up at NJH it was determined I don’t have MAC at all! My wonderful doctor at NJH is Dr. Kasperbauer. I loved their team approach. I have complete faith in their methods and conclusions. Best decision I ever made was to consult with them before going forward with a treatment plan! Best wishes!

@128128terry11t Wow. You are so lucky to have Dr. Huitt. I understand she is one of the best in the country. Nan
