Sputum culture and MIC Panel showing different results
Sue, just curious do you know how many colonies you had when you quit? or how many you have now? I was diagnosed a little over a year ago and I have not had treatment. I too am hoping the 7% saline and clearance measures keep the bacteria at bay.

I really have no idea how many I had, because we made the decision based on CT results and worsening side effects, so I was only told "still positive" with no quantities or sensitivity testing. Because I was asymptomatic with normal (for me) lung sounds and O2 sats in December, we made the decision to hold off testing and another CT until either symptoms return or Dec 2021, whichever is sooner. Still no symptoms, so I'm hoping no growth.
