Frequency of Pneumonia with Bronchiectasis
I am new to the group and was diagnosed with Bronchiectasis about a year ago. I have had pneumonia last Dec., this April and again in August. So far, that is 3 times in eight months. This time in Aug. I did better with getting an antibiotic sooner than the previous times, thanks to the wonderful advice from Queen City Walker. So, I'm still learning. I do have a first-time apt. with a bronchiectasis specialist next month. My question is to those with bronchiectasis – how often do you get pneumonia in a year's time? I am wondering is this my life now. I do lung clearance daily and use albuterol twice a day, also breo-ellipta for asthma. Btw, the last two times occurred around vacations.
