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

I see my ID doc in three weeks, and will definitely bring it up. Thanks.

That sounds awful. I'm glad you're still exercising. I'm convinced regular exercise helps us stave off the worst.

She didn't say no. I didn't understand how it would be helpful, and with so much to discuss, I think it got left to the side.

Oops, yeah, that was a no. She's talked about it. I currently have an albuteral nebulizer that I don't use. I guess we will decide what to do at our March appt. Thanks.

No, just the trifecta of antibiotics. the first sample of aspergillus said

Has anyone else picked up aspergillus (pulmonary fungal infection) while being treated for MAC? MY ID doc has it on watch because it can't be treated while I am being treated for the MAC, due to drug interactions. It doesn't help that my local clinic threw out my last two culture specimens for fungus because there was not enough for AFB cultures even though I wrote on big Sharpie twice on the second one was for fungus. I also have colonized pseudomonas, and am not currently being treated for that.

If you do have this situation, how has your doc been handling it?

Hmm…I am on the big three too, same dose, and fell four times this summer. The last time I needed stitches in my knee. I have been attributing the falls to my normal klutziness. Now I wonder if part of it may be due to the drugs. My metal hip on that side was OK too.
