Its been while since I wrote to you all. I wanted to get some thoughts on your experiences after taking the meds and how you did.
I have been taking the 3 meds for MAC now for 9 months and my sputum is still positive. I have no major side effects but I feel exhausted all the time and not well.
My ethambutol was increased last month. I just feel like the meds are not working. I thought since they said I was mild to medium infection that it would clear it up. I guess I wasn’t as mild as they thought. My lung ct are not cleared either.
I do albuteral, saline 7% on my nebulizer and a flutter valve . I really do not see much help getting my sputum up.
My infectious disease doctor wants to send me back to Duke for another opinion. Don’t know about that. I was thinking maybe getting her to get me an appointment at Jewish health hospital for an opinion.
Would like to hear your thoughts. I am at a crossroads and need help.
Thank you all
