Hi their. I have just been diagnosed with Bronchiectasis and had to go for a Bronchoscopy, I was asked what I was worried about and I said getting pneumonia and my lungs collapsing again, I was then told I already have pneumonia. Is it pneumonia or Bronchiectasis, are they the same thing or slightly different. The definition is enlarged airways filled with fluid/mucus this is what I have been told I have and that's what Bronchiectasis is, I am a little confused, tired, bruised and lifeless. Can someone please tell me what the difference is?
