I'm newly diagnosed with Bronchiectasis and as part of the follow up I was tested for TB/NTM, this has shown negative for TB but I've been found to have 3 different NTM infections which were all discovered from a single sputum afb smear/culture, is this the norm for bronchiectasis patients? Also curious if anyone else has had multiple strains at the same time and what the procedure is regarding treatment, any advice on questions I should ask at next follow up appt would also be of great help as I really have no idea regarding all of this.
