I often have messages from here go to spam. I check spam regularly and have to click not spam.

Thank you. I printed and mailed it to my pulmonologist. Result: He prescribed a vest and 3% saline.

I am also in Tallahassee. I have MAC and bronchiectasis. Had quad bypass Oct 2015. Things went terribly wrong in ICU, had to go back to OR. It is thought I caught MAC then. Found out last week I have an 80% blockage in one of those arteries. My Dr just ordered me a thumper vest and 3% saline. Ask for 7%. Sue T

Thank you, Kate! I was feeling the same way about the Dr not being up-to-date. I appreciate this blog so much. I read everything I can on MAC and bronchiectasis. I learn so much here.

I ask my Dr for saline and he said no! I am really upset. I tried the "Big 3" back in July 2017, right after my diagnosis. Took them for 3 1/2 months…too sick to take care of myself. I can't believe he would be unwilling to give me saline. He also said no to the vest. Other than coughing, usually productive, I have no symptoms. My oxygen stays 97%-98%. I am on no meds, except for medical cannabis. I did have a pseudomonis in Dec 2018, after having day surgery to have my gallbladder out. That was my last hospitalization. Can anyone send me links to research articles that I can show this Dr. He wants me to go back on Big 3…no way!
