How is everybody doing?

Hello All! The forum has gone quite. Haven’t heard from some of you in awhile. I am hoping some of you will check in. As for me, I just got ALL of my sputem lab reports going back to 2013 as I had requested. My very last test from June came back negative for everything. Yay!!!! I still battle fatigue and shortness of breath though. There were some organisms picked up in the past that I had not recognized, so I am going to Google them. Look forward to hearing from everyone! -Terri M.

Gosh….. I’ll try to remember to do that. Never thought a thing in the world about it.

terri how did you get rid of everything? Did you take the big 3 for 2 years, or do other things. I cant tolerate the pills anymore so just doing aeribica and exercise. Honestly, I know I am getting slowly worse. Kind of scared of choking because sometimes blood comes up and quite frankly would rather go another way (like Katherine) than choke to death. Please post others that have bloody sputum or Hemoptysis. Hearing how others cope with this maks me more comfortable. xo Christa

Jan, we are not saying you do not have asthma. Often times asthma and COPD go hand-in-hand with bronchiecstasis. It is called ‘co-morbid disease’. I have all three and then some! -Terri

@mariposa Andree! OMG! I don’t know how I missed this post. I am so sorry! I am also not happy to hear about your awful bronch experience. I had the same thing happen to me when I had mine done; they didn’t even put me in the twilight anesthesia like they are supposed to. I was totally conscious and not sedated at all! It was the most horrific experience I have ever had. When done correctly; a bronch is supposed to be as tolerable as a colonoscopy. If you have a nightstand, it might be a good idea to keep your thermometer there. It is a good idea to be aware of fevers, as they tend to indicate infection. How are you doing know? What did you learn from your doctor visits? (if you want to share that.) Hugs, Terri M.
