I have cavitary MAC in my upper right lobe. I was told a couple of things at Mayo and looking for feedback.
1. My doctor told me this week that I shoukd not do air travel with cavitary MAC. I was told the pressure on an airplane could cause the cavity to leak or break, releasing infection. Anyone heard this? I never had!
2. I am a strong candidate for VATS surgery to remove the cavity after I’m on meds for 6 months. Anyone had upper right cavity MAC and either had or might have surgery?
Thanks for any feedback
