My MAC and bronchiectasis treatment
I have been diagnosed with Mac disease and bronchiectasis 15 years ago. I've had many bouts of pneumonia and bronchitis. Finally my local Dr in Naples FL has said that I have active MAC issues going on and he wants me to go on the 3 drug plan for 18 months. I am very interested in hearing from others that have tried this plan and see if it is worth doing in the long run. I have heard that it sometimes makes you nauseous and you lose weight. And from other friends that have already been on this plan and they still have many issues with both of these diseases. One has become resilient to taking many antibiotics and they are no longer effective. I feel like maybe I should just make sure that I have the pneumonia shot every other year and take elderberry, vitamin C, echinacea, probiotics and airbourne every day and give that a try and see if it is effective before doing the 3 drug program. I'm afraid that it will damage my organs etc because they are so strong. Any suggestions or help from others would be appreciated. I did have a bronchiscope done and sputum test and breathing test all came back with bad indicators of my serious problem. Thanks.
