My consultant said 'if they licensed it for you nobody would pay for it'. This is discrimination as those with cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis get it in shed loads. In the US it is having a dramatic improvement for those with non cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis. I have struggled with bronchiectasis for 60 years. I have lived a healthy lifestyle, exercised, done my physio every day and still fight massive amounts of sputum. I am tired and very angry. Other patients seem not to know that we are discriminated against in this way and consultants are afraid to address the problem.
