Jul 29, 2018 · Bronchiectasis: New Diagnosis in MAC & Bronchiectasis

It is a joy to tell you something about me that has such good memories, and was a positive experience in my life. A mustang officer is a person who joined the Navy as an enlisted person, and who received their college degree through the Navy became a commissioned officer. Hard work, but worth it. I was selected for a program called the Navy Enlisted Scientific Education Program. They sent me to Purdue University. BTW, you know Chief Petty Officers are widely respected. They have come up through the ranks to the higher enlisted grades. I'm proud of his service, too.

I don't mind you asking. Yes, I was in the Navy, retired on 20. A mustang officer. Do you know what that is?? I live in Navarre. I'm open to Mayo.

Thanks, it helps to hear (read) the echos of my sx's through yours and other texts. I wondered a long time along with my family "whu I just couldn't snap out of it" Eventually, I admitted there was no snapping out of how I feel. I pushed to work because I had to. Finding doctors who know what I'm talking about has been a frustrating journey. I've promised myself to keep going to build as healthy a body as possible.

Thanks for your reply. And thanks for bringing up medical records. I don't have copies of mine or any test results, but I know what medical center has them, and I think it's time to pursue this. Just giving me something that I can do –helps.

New to your group. Non-smoker. Pneumonia x6 in 12 years, double pneumonia twice. Was diagnosed with chronic bronchitis and COPD for past 15 years, now pulmonologist based on x-rays and MRI has diagnosed no COPD, yes bronchiectasis. Take advair 250/50 twice a day. Past ten days I am increasingly gurgling, wheezing, some chest pain. I have recently moved to Florida which I like but am having long wait times to get into see a family care NP who can hopefully refer me to a pulmonologist. I walk 20-30 minutes a day. Any ideas how to manage this now. Am worried about getting pneumonia again. I went to one walk-in clinic at a reputable hospital. They literally did nothing except take x-rays. Didn't even talk to me. Just billed $2000+ for x-rays. Do I try another walk-in clinic. I feel very alone right now with this chronic medical problem.
