Diagnosed with pseudomonas aeruginosa infection in my lungs
I haven't had any success with many antibiotics including 3 weeks on a IV of Zosyn! Does anybody have any suggestions? What about the antibiotic Ceftazidime? I'm sure that this is one antibiotic that I have not been prescribed by my doctor. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the MAC & Bronchiectasis Support Group.
Yes, one year next week. Pulmonologist saw me this week and she is happy with the sound of my lungs and general progress, but laughed when I complained about lack of energy and told me that I am doing pretty well considering age and lungs. She suggested chasing toddlers might be the cause.
@megan123 It sounds like this discussion would be helpful in both groups. Yes, due to your question I added it to both groups just now. Thank you for the question/suggestion.
@r0nald Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. May I ask what brings you to connect? I may be able to help connect you with members like you.
I seen Post for mayo Clinic Interferon
I am a retired MD and have worked with many infectious diseases, I have been following closely Mayo clinics integrated medicine, which I believe should be adhered to by all Doctors.
Erika, I've posted my question again in the MAC group. I don't follow this group and I don't believe that the people I am trying to reach belong here either. It took me 3 days to find my message and I didn't get the response I had hoped to receive, Please leave it in MAC. Thanks and happy new year.
Is Dr. McShane with a hospital or group? Tyler would be close for me since I live in Louisiana.
Dr Mcshane is at Tyler.
I have also been diagnosed with Pseudomonas Aeruginosa back in Jan.2022. I am sorry to say I only know the name of the medication I am currently on. I have a nebulizer for use with saline then followed by Tobramycin.
Originally I was given a tablet that was maybe Levaquin that had rupture of tendons as a side effect. They eventually realized I had ruptured tendons so I couldn't take that.
Then I went on the IV medication which helped a lot. At some point they stopped that and replaced it with the nebulized Tobramycin. I continue on Tobramycin.
I wish I could help both of us! May you be safe for many years to come.
A friend of mine here in Oregon who is an amazing herbal self taught healer. She swears by Oregon Grape Bark as a tea.
I want to try it but need someone to find me some.
