Iv have only just discovered that I have bronchiectasis but apparently I have had it for 4 years. I was told that my left lung was damaged 4 years ago after several chest infections. Lately I have had 5 courses of antibiotics and 4 courses of steroids. I have also had an X-ray and a CT scan to be told both lungs are now damaged. The bottom of both lobes have collapsed . So now I have a nebuliser and I have 2.5 liquid Ventolins for my nebuliser. I am 62 and I have been a career for my husband for the last 24 years and now I feel like I need taking care of. Is their anyone else with similar problems ???
