Hi Deb. On my 3rd month of Ethambutol and azithromycin. Doing better than I thought I would. Had pneumonia last week so that d@mpened my spirits. Looking good now and will take a c t scan in 2 weeks and then my Dr (infectious disease) will see if he has to put me on Rifabutin. He is very hesitant and wants the best for me but I will know what the scan shows. Here’s hoping it looks okay🤔*

Thanks Deborah.
for all your info. What probotic do you take. Also, I worry about how Ethrambuton affects most people’s eyes as I have very little site in my L eye
