My near 80 yr old father was recently diagnosed with Bronchiecstesis and MAC. He saw an infectious disease specialist today and she put him on the "big 3" on a daily regimen. His latest scan shows cavitation. So far his only symptoms are chronic cough, fatigue, and a big weight loss. I am terribly concerned at how the antibiotic treatment will affect him. My questions are... are there alternative treatments that we should seek in addition to the antibiotic drugs? Diet? Supplements? Alternative medicine? TCM? Ayurveda? I am trying to find any info I can on how patients handle the treatment and how to give him the best support going forward. Thank you so much for any suggestions!
