Hi, I'm Rachel.
Diagnosed with bronchiectasis last week and not really sure what this is going to mean for my life. I've had asthma since childhood (well controlled for years) but this is different.
My home grown diagnosis was "my lungs make gunk" and my best home grown treatment was "run every day until I cough, to get rid of it". This seems pretty accurate so far. I'm waiting for a physio appointment, and trying carbocisteine to see if it helps.
Is there anything else I should be doing?
Thanks for being here and reading this. Grateful to know I'm not alone.
