Thank you so much for sharing your experience. It is reassuring. Did your doctors suggest to dilute the Arikayce with saline, and does it in any way affect the efficacy?

I hope that you get resolution of your cavity. It is wonderful that you tested negative for MAC so soon after starting treatment. That is very encouraging for your prognosis. I always love to hear the success stories. Please let us all know how you are doing after your next NJH visit with your doctor.

The doctors at NJH have me dilute the amikacin just so it’s not so harsh on the throat. They do this with every patient that has inhaled amikacin. It does not change the efficiency in any way because you still have to inhale all of the combined solution in the neb cup.
