@windwalker …I respectfully disagree with your statement “once you have Bronchiectasis there is no going off antibiotics”. Although Bronchiectasis is a lifelong condition….many people with Bronchiectasis live healthy antibiotic free lives. Bronchiectasis is not an infection and if it is treated as one your body will become immune to the antibiotics and result in ineffective applications for later infections……. . In addition antibiotics wrack havoc with your entire body killing off important life giving cells in your eyes, ears, brain, and digestive system…virtually every organ in your body. It’s bad enough we have to endure the side effects of 18-24 month MAC antibiotic regimens…..we don’t need to suggest people take antibiotics indefinitely. Life long antibiotic use for those void of infections in the opinion of most physicians does more harm than good.
