sputum culture for MAC testing without producing any
I wonder if anybody was in the situation when you do not produce phlegm or any sputum and you need it to be tested for MAC conversion. What is done then? I have been on antibiotics for 5 months and neither my pulmonologist nor ID doctor try to get samples for MAC situation. Thank you; please share ; I worry a lot; tried once and there was only saliva which could not be processed.
