Possible Aspergilloma to require surgery

I am 83 years old with MAC Abscessus. I healthy otherwise from walking/exercising; taking multiple vitamins regularly and nebulizing. At this age, I really don't expect to be cured of this disease; but, maintain, as your doctor said. I also want to avoid taking the BIG THREE because of the side effects. Most antibiotics give me diarrhea and itchy skin. Will see how it goes!

Nancy, I think you have the right answers — love your attitude and think you are a problem solver……

Antibiotics can also give one C-Difficile – I was in the hospital for a week ten years ago because my dentist gave me Amoxicillian after pulling a tooth. The hospital included probiotics in the treatment – not a cure but they offer some protection

Hi, @nac1 I'm typically walking 2-3 miles a day, occasionally lifting weights and doing yoga to stay active. I could definitely do more! Can you tell me what the BIG THREE are? Are they all antibiotics?
