Bronchiectasis and staving off recurrent infections
I’m 54, nonsmoker, and was diagnosed with bronchiectasis and mild asthma 3 years ago after a bad run of double pneumonia. The infections are becoming so frequent — from a few months apart before to a couple of weeks. When I get infected, I go on 14 days of levacquin (750) and prednisone (40 and taper). It seems to work, but I get sick again very quickly. The symptoms are sore throat, major sinus issues, then coughing, bronchitis and fever. Also, my ability to think, work and engage in life is greatly compromised.
Has anyone worked with someone in the immunology field to try and build up their immune system? Is this done? Also, would it help to get vitamin injections? Any other ideas? I am desperate!
