@bevmac What wonderful news! Does that mean you are able to stop the antibiotics? If so, has any strategy been devised to help keep the MAC at bay, like saline nebs and/or lung clearance?

I stop the antibiotics early August, and do not see my lung specialist again until November, so time will tell what happens then. Will stay plant based, with minimum 200 grams seafood per week, plus 2 eggs outside the plant based guidelines.

online to stop on 4/8. Visit lung specialist again November to see how I'm going – not sure about the mycobacteria. For what it is worth, my coughing stopped 16 months ago after being advised by preventive medicine doc to drink celery juice. After 12 months of coughing, the cough stopped 3 days after drinking the celery juice. I still take it, however with apple beetroot ginger and little garlic. More palatable.

stopping 4/8. Check again in November to see how I am going. I feel sure giving up dairy, reducing protein, moderate plant based eating and celery juice as well as the meds. 17 months down and 1month to go. No eye issues with the medication. I am retired so can live the easy relaxed life. I'm 77. A young 77.
