@dglaude First, welcome to this supportive, informative group. I've learned much here, and recommend you do the same. Do a keyword search for posts about alternative treatments to the "big 3" as many knowledgeable docs are now avoiding that old school treatment protocol…some of us have been on just one antibiotic, others have rotated, others have been on inhaled Amikicin (sp)… first, make sure your doc cultured your MAC specimen taken during your bronchoscopy to determine the right antibiotic to use on your particular strain.

We must keep on the pressure to particularly the CDC and FDA…the more folks from whom they hear, the more recognition that this is not a fringe disease as they currently believe…we w/MAC number in the millions…let's let'em know that…

@prelle1 I Googled "top rated medical center Houston and here's the results: https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1&q=top+rated+medical+center+Houston recommend you start with these…and so sorry you had such a terrible doc…it is incumbent upon us to do our own research and advocacy…glad you are doing so now.

@brigby I don't as yet have abscessus so can't provide info on that, but sounds like you are symptomatic…I have none…no cough…no flu-like body aches…etc. so truly asymptomatic thus not in need of treatment at this time…
