Mar 28, 2017 · (MAC/MAI) MYCOBACTERIUM AVIUM COMPLEX PULMONARY DISEASE/BRONCHIECTASIS in MAC & Bronchiectasis

I introduced myself and problem a few weeks ago. I don’t think I had reached the ocurrence yet that I am writing about today. I had a six month visit with my pulmanologist an he ordered a sputum test because I complained of coughing more. Sadly the results was pseudomonas with only tobramycin and furzas recommended. Half way through the tobramycin I thought it was going to kill me. Doctor went immediately to 10 day program with furzas. I have finished that and they are leaving the picu line in case of needed repeat. Help

After beginning tobramycin inhalation I developed what was believed to be orbital cellulitus, hospitalized, put on oxygen( never had been before) my skin and eye looked bad. The eye doc though contact dermatitus. After three days was discharged and saw my eye doc four days later. Eye looks pretty good’ perscribed Tobra ointment, used that night, same eye next A.M. back to doc. Now doing the inhaling, not believeing I’m tied to the O2. Eye is improveing.
