Wed, Mar 11 6:27am · COVID-19 and MAC: What are you doing differently to protect yourself? in MAC & Bronchiectasis

I go visit a friend in Arizona for a week to soak up a little sunshine because I live in the midwest. My doctor knows I go. I was going next week. She told me not to get on a plane. Since it's too far to walk and I don't like driving, I cancelled.

I think protein powder is a good idea. I'm going to save dairy until after breakfast. I was a bottle reader today. It said not to have calcium until 4 hours after the synthroid. I take it at 5:00 am when I get up. I am retired but I have dogs that want out. Today I just had peanut butter on toast and a banana. It was quite tasty!

My family doctor just called. I had blood work on Wednesday. Sure enough, my thyroid counts are way high! It's time for a medication dosage change! Also, my protein in low. I'm really not sure what that is about except I started eating smoothies for breakfast that are low in protein. I guess it's time to stop that!

I think I sound like I’m not happy you are in remission. I’m VERY happy for you! Just don’t be like me. Stay vigilant. I use the 7 percent twice a day. I do my first spudem sample after starting meds next month. Fingers are crossed! I also read the book. I started doing acupuncture too.

I didn't start nebulizing until I got MAC and got on this forum. I now do nebulize twice a day with the 7% saline. I had stopped everything. I won't do that again.

Mine was in remission for 5 years. I thought I was fine. I went to my Pulmonologist for my yearly check and he told me it had been 2 years since my last X-ray. I had not been coughing and I said I didn't need it. He told me to go get one and go out for lunch, he was sure it was fine. Then my adventure with MAC began.

If there was a smiley face button, I'd push it.

I go in March. I think I’ll have her recheck it.
