I was diagnosed with bronchiectasis around 18 months ago. I paid privately for a couple of sessions with a physiotherapist whilst I was waiting for my first appointment with NHS consultant. The physio taught me breathing exercises, huffing, and so on. I have now seen my consultant several times, had breathing tests, and am now on a waiting list for pulmonary rehabilitation. My GP supplies me with Carbocisteine and Salbutamol, plus rescue packs of antibiotics for the flare ups.
I bought a 'non branded' 'lung expansion and mucus relief device' off the internet, and feel that this has helped. However, I realise that there are different brands of these devices available to buy, and I would welcome advice from anyone on the forum as to which one might be the best option?
Thanks for any advice on offer! Best wishes to you all.
I have Interstitial. Lung Disease,not bronchiectasis.
The local respiratory team supplied me with an Aerobika device,I find it really useful to manage my condition..
