Hi my daughter who is 20 has been diagnosed with Bronchiectasis and we are struggling to get information, she had her ct scan in november 15 and lost of blood tests and lung function tests the letter from her consultant stated that her tubes where wider than normal and this would explain the symptoms... constant cough , chest infections etc, no mention of Bronchiectasis, however or GP has said that it is bronchiectasis. Our problem is that we have not seen the consultant again to ask questions about the condition and I rang this morning and was told that she was due to be seen march/april 16 but they were behind and didn't know when she would be seen. I am trying to get travel insurance and one of the questions is have you ever been diagnosed with copd and I cannot answer as I do not know if Bronchiectasis comes under this umbrella. Also her sputum samples are coming back with bacteria showing but we are told not to treat it with antibiotics unless she has symptoms. Since last September she has only had one clear sputum test!
