Jul 23, 2018 · Pseudomonus in ice etc in MAC & Bronchiectasis

If pseudomonus is in ice does that mean everything made with water that is not filtered or distilled like for instance, sorbet would be contaminated?

I now realize that it is Microbacterium.

I haven't been on this thread in awhile. I would like to know what the Tobramycin nibs are and also the salt nibs. Thank you.

I have Bronchiectasis since 2009 and have had Pseudomonus for several years now. I have been treated with IV antibiotics but it just comes back eventually. I am now resistant to Cipro and Astreonam and others. I was then treated with Toby (Tobramycin) in the nebulizer but it was hard to tolerate for me. Most seem to be able to use it though. Now I use nebulizer Amikacin but I can only tolerate it once a day. I am off for 28 days and then back on for 28 more days. So far so good. I have whitish or clear sputum but still a lot of coughing and some wheezing as I also have asthma.

Haven’t heard of those losenges. Are you in the U.S.? I will ask my Dr.

Feb 13, 2018 · amikacin question in MAC & Bronchiectasis

I am just using the straight medicine no saline. I started to get hoarse and cough yesterday. Today is the 5th day and I am worse and afraid to use it again. I noticed someone mentioned they only use it every other day. Hope every other day could work for me because I don’t want to stop altogether.
