Hi - found out recently that there is a connection with NTM MAI and living with birds - has anyone been told this by a doctor, I saw a new pcp and he was stunned to learn that I was living in a house with a bird (amazon) - I was stunned that no one ever told me there was a connection - this is a very useful bit of info that should be explained to patients that are first diagnosed with a lung disease - I am also amazed that when diagnosed with bronchiectasis that doctors do not advise patients about all the future can hold, no one ever told me about NTM's until I had it.......There seems to be a big gap in Doctors relaying info about precautions to take in life while living with lung disease ........ norma......
ps. sounds like a project for a booklet for Doctors to hand out
