Does Medicare pay for silver sneakers or is it your supplemental insurance? Thx.

Beating Bronchiectasis by Daniel Pecaut is an incredible book, I learned a lot. Have started the nasal rinses, meditation, drinking 64 ounces of water per day and breathing exercises. He gives the reader a lot of hope. I bought my book on Amazon for $3.99. I was just recently diagnosed with Bronchiectasis (March 2017) and trying to be proactive. Informed by NJH yesterday that my cultures for MAC etc. were negative, so relieved.

Did your doctor call Mayo Clinic and make a referral for you?  This is usually the best way.

Thanks for the info, will try that.  Hopefully, will have tests results in another 3 weeks.

I seem to b having the same problem, When I click on ” last” or any of the number pages I come up with the same post. Even when I click on “previous.” I clicked on the link above, makes no sense to me, guess I am just too stressed out waiting for more test results.

I live in Rochester MN, part of the year, but I understand that Dr. Aksamite (sp ?) is not taking new patients. Can someone suggest a doctor @ Mayo Clinic in AZ?

But wouldn’t it b better to treat the infection while one still feels good?

How is treatment different at NJ compared to Mayo Clinic? Waiting for sputum results, haven’t been diagnosed with MAC yet but my Cat Scan wasn’t good. No cough just so tired and terrified. Told at NJ that they wouldn’t give me the drugs.
