Just found out I have mycobacterium abscessus!

You do so much already. Would it be possible for you to nebulize twice a day instead of once; I realize that you don't get up much when you do so it may not be worth the time (but things may improve if you use the 7%)? Dr. Huitt advised me to do it twice a day because more mucous plugs showed on my CT. When you do see a respiratory therapist, please ask him or her about using a fluttering device like an aerobika when you nebulize. Might you be eligible for a vest? Dr. Huitt suggested that I could use the vest when I nebulize. I appreciate your sharing your experience; thank you. Wishing you good luck and success.

Do you go through your doctor to try and get an aerobika? A Vest? I can message my Dr and ask for a prescription for those? Not sure if I could even get locally? But would definitely try if I could get those. Getting into Respiratory Therapy would have to wait till after this Covid pandemic, they aren't taking appointments, only emergencies. Thank you!
