I'm a 34 year old non smoker that's just been diagnosed with early bronchiectasis. I was informed in an unconventional way by a friend who works in radiology, after I had my CT scan (read my report) so I haven't spoken to my respiratory consultant just yet about it.
So here I am just looking for some advice and to learn more about it. Obviously I'm gonna start with the 2 most asked questions...
1. Is this a progressive thing- as in will it get worst no matter what or only if I get an infection?
2. Life expectancy- am I being dramatic by asking this, am I expected to have my life cut in half or can I live a normal life expectancy?
Obviously I need to discuss a lot with my consultant, but that's not until another 3 month unless she wants to see me earlier, I'm currently waiting on her call.
