4 hours ago · I was recently diagnosed with Bronchiectasis. in MAC & Bronchiectasis

Since I was a child, she has always done apple cider vinegar. Especially if somebody was sick, she would double up on it, but she never could get me to drink it. Until now. With the stevia. ACV has always been her go-to for everything, and I never remember my mom ever really being sick. She never got colds or the flu….to which she gives vinegar full credit. There are lots of books and articles on the subject.

@alleycatkate likewise, she has always used it for infection with excellent results. She is not back to 100% but pretty close. We know this is a lifelong condition, but she went from being SO BAD we all felt it had to be more than "just" MAC and bronchiectasis to SO GOOD. I know it's not for everybody, and she has been using it on a trial basis, but when the doctors gave her the green light last week, we are feeling hopeful.

She is doing 1 tsp every OTHER day……and the vinegar. I have come up with my own cocktail of 1 TBSP Bragg's vinegar, 3 oz. water, and a heaping spoonful of stevia. It is delicious! @flib @alleycatkate @pfists

Six weeks ago, my mom had a VATS procedure. She had been so sick since September relying on prednisone and oxygen, they had no other choice. Three days later, she developed pneumonia followed by pneumothorax. It was at this time she started nebulizing colloidal silver. She does it every other day, along with drinking Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar daily. She has now been completely off the prednisone and oxygen for 2 weeks, and her improvement is nothing short of remarkable. She is back in the gym 4 days a week. Her doctor's cannot even believe it is the same patient. They literally said 'you could not twist my arm to treat you; keep doing exactly what you're doing!' Maybe it's coincidence, maybe not, but 5 weeks ago we didn't think my mom was going to make it. In addition, my father got the flu and an awful cough a couple weeks ago. She insisted on sleeping with him to take care of him. She didn't get a thing!

She is still scheduled to go to Tyler on March 6 for her first appointment since the MAC was confirmed two weeks ago.

@alleycat, NOT AT ALL!!!! Once the diagnosis is final, I will be going through everything. The surgeon who performed the procedure was a thoracic surgeon, NOT the original pulmonologist who performed the terrifying bronchoscopy. She should not have remembered or felt a thing had she been adequately anesthetized. They are definitely not happy and, depending on results of the VATS in 2 weeks, will be finding a new pulmonologist. Her VATS was yesterday. Part of the basis for the procedure was cancer and pleural effusion. I will keep you both updated. Thank you @alleycat and @windwalker !!!!

Surgery was performed yesterday by a thoracic surgeon I researched and feel really good about. Dr. Griffith will not see her until her final MAC results (which is next week). They are scheduled to meet with Griffith at the end of January, but like you and @alleycat, I am highly doubting MAC is the Primary diagnosis.

Thank you Ethan!

It was not a downturn, per se, rather a sudden onset. She went from a perfectly healthy woman who walks/jogs 4-6 miles/day 4/wk to completely reliant on prednisone and oxygen 24/7 in a matter of weeks after brief travel to Arizona (four-wheeling, helicopter). Preliminary diagnosis (after the bronchitis, pneumonia, valley fever, etc.) was Mac and Bronchiectasis, but have since learned the results were read at 3 weeks, not the full 6-8 weeks necessary. Apparently, the scope did not pull great tissue samples so they are going back in on Friday morning via VATS. We are, however, set up with UT Tyler and Dr. Griffith in a couple weeks.
