I do have Gerd and have been taking meds for that for years. I may be asking you for help. I am slow at getting around in here but I'm getting more used to it. Thank you so much. I feel better just knowing I'm not alone. Thanks again, and have a good evening.

My Dr. hasn't mentioned bronchiectasis yet. I live in Fort Smith, Ar. and I'm seeing the only lung dr. here under my insurance plan. When I go back to see him on the 20th, I should know more. If you don't mind, I will read your treatment plan and give it to my dr.

I hope I'm not butting into a conversation that I shouldn't. I too, have MAC. This is my second go-round. I was first diagnosed in June of 2017. I took the standard 3 antibiotics for a period of 12 months and was told I was cured. When I went in for my yearly check up, my Dr. ordered a CT and it showed up in the scan. I had a Alveola Lavage and will see my dr. on the 20th for formal diagnosis. From what I'm reading, it doesn't sound very promising. This second time is so different than from the first. I can really feel it this time. I'm so sorry you all are having to go thru this. If anyone has any suggestions, I would love to hear them.
Again, this is my first attempt to join this group and I'm not sure of how to get started, and I'm sorry if I shouldn't have responded here.
