Hello, I was diagnosed with bronchiectasis about 8 years ago. I originally had pseudomonas and was treated with colomycin which supposedly has eradicated them. 7 My recent sputum sample showed two new pathogens in my lungs which my respiratory nurse said were difficult to treat. They are: Staphyloccus Aureus
and Klebsiella Pneumonias and some Thrush, She was concerned and said to start taking my rescue pack of Doxycycline and then give a further sputum sample at the end of the course for further analysis. If these two pathogens are still present following the testing of the sputum sample what further action will need to be taken?. Has anyone had any experience of these pathogens and the appropriate treatment given? Also, if they are so difficult to eradicate and are still present, what will happen next? Any advice would be so welcome as I am more than a bit worried. Thank you.
