Bronchiectasis, MAC and now Pulmonary Hypertension
I was cured of M Kansasii and Abcessus, in 2008, after an 18 month drug regiment. I have had Bronch for years. I bleed occasionally, but only heavy twice. I have had broncoscopy in 2014, and test positive for MAC, from National Jewish in Denver. I am not on any meds, have done very well. Doctor said, if it isn’t causing symptoms, leave it alone. I have had antiphylactic shock from Clarithromycin, so I can not take any in that class of drug.Tons of us are out there with some of those bacteria and never know it. That’s what doctor has said. I got a new dr. and he said the same thing. Anyway, I just had echocardiagram and was told I have mild pulmonary hypertension. I will be having sputum cultures again, before any meds are started for PH…I’m terrified. I can breathe, walk , do housework, watch my grandson all day, etc….I just wonder if anyone here has Pulmonary Hypertension too, along with these other diseases…Thanks for your help. This has really got me so upset.
