Thank you for letting me know. I was really looking forward to hopefully being done and starting to treat the aspergillus. Sigh.

Rifampin, Ethambutol, and Azithromycin.

Yesterday my ID doc's office called and said that now, 11 months into treatment with the big three, I still have “some MAC”, and to start taking them every single day. Has this particular course of action happened to anyone else?

Yeah, we've discussed that as an option when I hit the 12 month mark.

I think in my case the drugs have been working, because my coughing has reduced considerably, although now with the aspergillus, it has in reased a little. I guess I'll know when the results are in.

I had three days of sputum induction this week, which meant the nurse administered a saline nebulizer, then we sat and waited for me to cough. A tiny bit. I don't even know if it was enough for AFB samples. So that must be an individual isefulness sort of thing.

My answer above got cut off, I see. My cat must have been helping me type.
