2 days ago · Is bronchiectasis always progressive? in MAC & Bronchiectasis

I would think a knowledgeable Infectious Disease MD would know what she should be trying.

4 days ago · Reinfection while on antibiotics in MAC & Bronchiectasis

I would call and get in for a recheck and have blood work etc, to make sure what is going on. They tell us that is always possible to be reinfected, but if you are still on the antibiotics, that should decrease the likelihood but it is always best to check it out..

4 days ago · What causes the bacteria to grow in some people and not other? in MAC & Bronchiectasis

I saw my MD and asked him about the Nitric Oxide. He said, he thought the treatment would be very expensive. I will be interested to see how this continues to progress.

4 days ago · What causes the bacteria to grow in some people and not other? in MAC & Bronchiectasis

I submitted 2 sputum samples prior to starting the meds, I think I only got stuff from my throat. One was neg and the other was positive. I truly believe there is some of the MAC that lives in my throat. I had a little less of it about a month after starting the antibiotics but now it is hard to tell since I had some cold symptoms recently. I will wait to see once that clears up if I have less than prior to the meds.

Are you seeing an Infectious Disease MD. I am on Azithromycin, Rifampin and Ethamubtol. Did they tell you what type of MAC you have?

Yes, most of us have. What meds are you on?
