I am not having any symptoms. I walk 3 miles about 4 times a week. I know this is a life long disease.

I had a bronchoscope which tested positive for MAC. He was pretty sure that's what I had without the scope but wanted to confirm.

Thanks for the encouragement. I really got help from the breast cancer blogs I joined. My oncologist sent me to the pulmonologist when my CT scan didn’t clear up. It kept showing small noodles. The pulmonologist suspected MAC but waited to rescan me. I finally had a bronchoscope and the culture grew MAC in 8 weeks. It said +1. I have no idea if that’s good or bad. I have a follow-up in a month. I am also supposed to see ID doctor. From reading the posts, they are the doctors who push for the antibiotics. Can you stop and start these 3 drugs everyone mentions or are there no breaks in the routine once you get started?

Myy name is pink warrior, as I am a 5 year breast cancer survivor. They have been scanning my lungs for two years because of nodules and just confirmed MAC and I think he mentioned bronchiectasis. My pulmonologist does not tell me much. I have not started treatment yet. I did well through chemo, radiation and reconstruction and had hoped to have a rest from the whole ordeal. Now I am finding out MAC is not curable and I will be dealing with it for a long time. Feeling very frustrated and sad. I hope your blog will help me as did so many of the breast cancer blogs. Thank you.
