Sun, May 24 11:27am · Two bits of good news!! (and nebulizing with saline) in MAC & Bronchiectasis

Hi Aunt Nanny… I too have pseudomonas and am using Colistin every other month.. Toby made me wheezy and cough a lot… this drug is amazing and has changed my life along with proper airway clearance and 7 percent saline twice a day

National Jewish also recommends 7% saline twice a day for our lung disease.. I have read the same info on many sites saying the same thing..I sometimes can’t tolerate the second dose, so I will use 3% instead with my Colistin..thanks for th3 info Terry

Hi Soliloquized….just to clarify…we r talking about the N95 masks…that have a 0.2 micron filters, for us as well to keep out the MAC….i have always been told by the experts that this mask is what we use both by Mayo, National Jewish, Dr Falkingham, and the list goes on…thank you for the info, but it seems conflicting, and might create heightened anxiety for us that MAC etc…have I got it right?🇨🇦

Hi Nick….I have been using Extra Strength Clear Lungs everyday, only 1 pill as a preventative..if I notice an exacerbation which I don't anymore, then I would increase the dosage…maybe this as well as Nac, Oil of Oregano, and Vit D 6,000 plus K, has helped, even with colonized Pseudomonas, MAC, Bronchiectasis….

Sun, Apr 5 2:00pm · Top MAC doctor/treatment Rochester: Questions to ask at first appt? in MAC & Bronchiectasis

@n4seth….hi there…I would ask about airway clearance..do I start doing it now, and if so what do I use ie aerobika..how many times a day is recommended, and duration….also, is it too soon to be nebulizing saline 7 percent x2 a day?? Exercise is extremely important, to get the mucus out of our lungs, so as not to create an infection…there is so much more to ask, bug it sounds like you have a great start….Mayo Clinic Connect is what allows me to live a better life with all the knowledge on this forum, especially from Terry…I'm from Toronto, and we were lacking info in so many areas…Knowledge is Power..you are in the right place🇨🇦

Fri, Apr 3 4:34pm · Let's Talk about Gardens in COVID-19

Hi Sue….I use to be an avid gardener, finding it very relaxing, until I got MAC, and eventually pseudomonas…Not I make sure that I have on gloves and an N95 mask for protection…I think we have to be careful with gardening and especially the soil in pots
