Nov 1, 2018 · Have Bronchiectasis, recently diagnosed with pseudomonas in MAC & Bronchiectasis

@katemn – Hello! In searching for help for my Husband who has had pseudomonas on and off since 2009, bronchiectasis for years and MAC since 9/2017. He is 75 and also has COPD and Pulmonary Fibrosis. I came across this very informative site! I can’t wait to read more about everyone’s stories.
My husband has had three rounds of IV antibiotics through a PICC line since beginning of July with no help. Oral antibiotics do not work anymore. One round of Ceftazadime and two rounds of Cepifime(?). He just got approved for the Tobi inhalation solution to start today.
My first question is 1) has anyone experienced severe nausea and/or chronic constipation?
My second question is, obviously (2) has anyone had the same problem getting a control on the pseudomonas? We have a wonderful team of our Infectious Disease Dr and our Pulmonary Dr at Loma Linda Hospital. History of also seeing wonderful pulmonary dr at UCLA.
Thank you for reading my husband’s illness and any responses will be welcome!
