health at diagnosis
I’m curious if anyone in the group was diagnosed with bronchiectasis and had no problems at diagnosis. I have asthma, acid reflux and had a bad case of pneumonia two years ago. I also had whooping cough ten years ago. Other than that I dread getting colds because I cough forever, but nothing other than that. I had cultures taken at diagnosis and they all came back negative. I had breathing function tests which all came back pretty good for someone with asthma. The only reason bronchiectasis was caught was because I had a CT scan for a spot they saw on my lung. I went to pulmonary and they want to do another CT at six months and if there is no change it will be once a year. Is this just a ticking time bomb for me? I feel like I am waiting for something to happen and sometimes even wonder if I was diagnosed incorrectly. I read the boards and don’t see anyone here that had this disease start like mine. I see your struggles and take it all in for what might come down the road. Thanks for your thoughts.
