Hi. I was diagnosed with broncheactasis in 2013. At that time my sputum culture showed no bacteria and u was sent home with lefloxin and was told that whenever I get infection I have to take leflox. I had no major infection in 2014 but in August 2015, I had a severe attack of broncheactasis. My Spo2 levels decreased to 34% and I was admitted in military hospital. There I had CT scans that showed my both lower lungs lobes are damaged and somehow middle lobes too. Sputum culture again did not show any bacteria. I was sent back to home with ciprofloxin and steroids and was told that come after 1 month for sputum test. After 1 month the sputum culture showed pseudomonas aeroginosa. My breathing again became worsened and spo2 level dropped to 74%. The doc told that the only solution is use of inhalers, 15 hours oxygen therapy and a course of cipro once a month. I was not satisfied as after 2 weeks again I felt that I cant breathe and It has effected my daily tasks. I went for another private doc. He looked at my sputum test and the antibiotics sensitivity and gave me cipro along with the IVs of ampicillin and sulbactam for 8 days along with steroids and cipro. I didn't find any difference so according to his prescription I started a course ceftazidime IV inj along with cipro for 12 days. I felt better for 2 weeks. But again fell ill due to toothache and sore pimples on my face and breathing issues. The private doc asked me for the sputum culture test and that showed no pseudo again. still he asked me to start azithromycin and fotrum. I went to military doc and he told me why are u taking antibiotic now as ur sputum culture test showed no pseudomonas this time so stop it and just nebulise with atem and clenil and keep the mucous out. But its now 4th month im not well and does not knows what will happen further. I'm already fed up as no one guides me properly. Any one who knows other treatment or natural remedies that can help me to be back in normal life. My spo2 levels are quite low I.e under 75% and im on 24 hours oxygen now a days and just stays on the bed as I cant breathe properly I cant walk properly I become breathless. Iam 26 years old and want to live a normal life but all in vain and it seems I wouldn't be normal now. . I'm going into depression. I don't know how to cope up with this disease and to bring back my breaths that I really miss now. I was never on oxygen therapy before but now iam totally reliable on oxygen. Please help me out
