4 days ago · Top MAC doctor/treatment Rochester: Questions to ask at first appt? in MAC & Bronchiectasis

I don't know Dr Thomas, but yes, for several months response from my pulmonologist (Teng Moua) has been much, much slower. When I've inquired, his secretary apologizes and says he's on hospital duty and it's been sometimes a week hearing back from him whereas used to hear within 24 hours. He's always very apologetic and I know they do pulmonology and critical care duty in the hospital. I don't know if this is something more new for them or if they are overrun with cases. That's been my experience and I'm just sharing.

It's really nice to know someone else using Dr Moua. Am wondering if I could get your email address. Would perhaps like to correspond with you from time to time. I started seeing him in 2015. Will be happy to share my address (if it's allowed on this site)????

I'm a pulmonary patient at Rochester and my doctor is Teng Moua. I don't koow how he is rated at Mayo's but when they assigned me to him, they said he was one of the best. (Of course, they probably say that about all — and frankly, I think they are all equally qualified. They rather work as a team and they consult with their colleagues on most everything) I think you will be pleased but please write again after you've been there.

Tue, Mar 31 12:03am · COVID-19 and MAC: What are you doing differently to protect yourself? in MAC & Bronchiectasis

windwalker I decided to try to make contact with someone from this forum. For some unknown reason, I have not received any notifications from any members' writings in several weeks. I was worried that somehow it was no longer working. If you can learn why I quit receiving notes I would appreciate knowing what I need to do to be on the receiving end again. Thank you

kathyhg I'm just trying to see if patients are still writing on this forum. For some reason, I haven't received any postings in 4-6 weeks. I'm hoping the forum is still working and that somehow I get included thank you

Wed, Mar 11 5:47pm · Seeking advice on inducing sputum in MAC & Bronchiectasis

oram — I read with interest your note. I have just the opposite problem. Produce green phlegm all day long — it just rolls out. I do albuterol, followed by saline, followed by tobramycin. Nothing stops it. I cough, clear my throat and go through this all day. Occasionally there is a better day but not normally. I would like the answer as to how to stop it. I might seem clear early morning, but if I swallow anything — it immediately starts the phlegm (even a drink of water). Very weird — hoping you get some answers although I am of no help.

windwalker……. I'm just wondering if you have heard yet of any of the patients on this forum being diagnosed with the virus. I'm curious about that. Just praying for all with lung-related problems. Worrisome, for sure.
