My pulmonologist is choosing to not give me antibiotics. I think because my lung function is still normal and I don't have a lot of symptoms other than a couple coughing bouts per day. He did give me a nebulizer which I use every day and a flutter device. My culture was negative but he still thinks I have MAC but not a bad case. I run almost every day and have no issue with fatigue. I'm kind of confused by it but I think he's worried that the antibiotic regimen will be too much for me. I was thinking maybe I could do the 3 per week antibiotic.
