3 Months in with 7% Sodium Chloride

Posted by BlueSplashGirl/ Carolyn @bluesplashgirl, May 15, 2020

I just took another sputum test and the fast and first results are clear of any obvious rare form of Mycobacterium they found (immediately) last November. Now, the growing process starts and I am hopeful that the daily 7% neb will prove successful for beating back the MAC. I started the meds and neb 3 months ago. Fingers crossed I can be done with the big 3 this summer.

@bluesplashgirl Good luck! Hope the culture comes back negative. I'll be having mine in a few weeks and hoping for good results too.

I go for my yearly check with my pulmonologist next week at Mayo for bronchiectasis and hope things are continuing to be stable, with nothing new showing up on the CAT scan……..🤞🤞🤞

How long have you been on the big 3? I’ve only been taking them for 2 months. Due to Covid I haven’t had any sputum tests. My doc is in Birmingham. I’m new and don’t know what to think. I have bronchiectasis and a cavitation. I’m 72 years old. Thank you.
