My 54 year old husband just got diagnosed with bronchiectasis in both lungs. He was very occasional smoker in his youth and otherwise very healthy.
In the Spring, he developed what they thought was whooping cough and from there it got progressively worse. We have the diagnosis but we are having a difficult time finding out how to proceed.
He is exhausted from the coughing and his energy levels are low. He brings up a lot of phlegm and lung castings. He is on Symbacort and another inhaler.
We are looking for any suggestions, help etc. I spoke with someone today who told me about eliminating wheat out of the diet, and what a difference that made.
Any suggestions? (Our Canadian healthcare system does not seem to give much direction on this condition.)
