Long-term Antibiotics for Bronchiectasis & MAC

Posted by pejohnston @pejohnston, Feb 26, 2018

Diagnosed w/Bronchiectasis in 2008, MAC in 2011 and have been on many medications since then. Under control for several years, but reinfected a couple of years ago while on antibiotics. My body became somewhat immune to some of meds I was on. I am now taking several more drugs that have pretty significant side affects. Fortunately, I’ve been okay with them. Anyone else been on antibiotics for this length of time?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the MAC & Bronchiectasis Support Group.

I think the IBS was a misdiagnosis when the sarcoid and MAC were undetected.

I never did either. My husband had the surgery for it when we were in Tennessee. It helped him quite a bit!
