@heathert Has your doctor suggested going on an antibiotic post treatment to help reduce possibility of recurrence or to treat bronchiecstasis?

After completing the Big Three protocol for MAC, has anyone been advised to take azithromycin (without any other drug) three times/weekly to reduce the possibility of a recurrence and as possible treatment for bronchiecstasis? If so, what did your doctor say about the possibility of developing resistance? Anyone know of any literature supporting this? I realize that there are mixed opinions in the medical field about doing this.

Jul 9, 2018 · cleaning/rinsing aerobika and nebulizer in MAC & Bronchiectasis

About a year ago I asked the following question on this forum: must you use boiled or distilled water when cleaning and rinsing the aerobika and nebulizer? Many responded that it was necessary to use boiled water while others stated that they do not. Someone recently informed me that she asked her dr from Mayo this specific question and the doctor responded that mac does not live on dry plastic and thus it would not be necessary to use boiled water for cleaning and rinsing. Many months ago when I asked Dr. Falkinham, a highly respected microbiologist; I believe that he answered that it would be prudent to use boiled water. I just re-emailed Dr. Falkinham to make certain that he indeed does think this is necessary. For those of us who use boiled water, what do you do when traveling? What have others heard from their doctors about this? What do many of our members do?
Looking forward to reading the responses and thank you. Terry
