Trying to cope with bronchiectasis
I am a 73 year old female who has been diagnosed with bronchiectasis in the last year. I have seen 3 pulmonogists including one at the Mayo Clinic. All possible tests and ct scans of my lungs have been done. I am on Duo Neb and sodium chloride 7% two to three times a day in a nebulizer along with the Smart Vest. I have coughing spells which bring up sputum of various colors including green and yellow. I have been on antibiotics a few times along with prednisone which has not made that much difference. I am looking for any other tips, suggestions, or ideas others have with this condition. And what do you tell friends and family who can't understand that this isn't curable but a condition that I have to live with?
Thanks for any imput
