... When I was first diagnosed with bronchiectasis I had pseudomonas, MAC and aspergillus. The aspergillus was taken care of. I have been treated for MAC two different times. The pseudomonas is hard to get knocked down. The first time I had it Cipro worked, but not anymore. I have been on IV antbiotics 3 times in the last 4 months. I do it myself at home. A visiting nurse comes... (6 replies)
... My brother, an M.D. - anesthesiologist, had pseudomonias and almost lost his foot to it. He stepped on a nail which penetrated the rubber bottom of his tennis shoe and went into his foot. He was on an I.V. drip and several different antibiotics for a month, then finally took Erythromycin (a broad spectrum antibiotic) to wipe it out.
Hope that helps. (6 replies)
... Pseudomonas is an opportunistic bug. If your lungs are normal, it can't hurt you and you probably wouldn't even catch it. So IMO you probably have/had an underlying issue with your lungs that made you suseptible to catching it. In DS' case he has cystic fibrosis. I've heard elderly who are immune suppressed or who may have COPD are also at risk for catching it. (6 replies)
... Thanks for your response. Yes I have a condition called Brocositisis (probably spelt that wrong as well. My GP identified pseudomonas around three years ago. They gave me a course of oral antibiotics but never tested again. More recently via a specialist my lung condition was diagnosed. I am now trying to understand if the infection may have caused the lung condition? ... (6 replies)
... It's actually spelled pseudomonas and it's a very difficult infection to get rid of because it can survive in a wet/water environment for a very long time. Do you have an underlying health condition because it's not a very common bug to get unless you have lung disease, cystic fibrosis or are immune compromised. Usually a sputum culture is taken to see what the bugs, in this... (6 replies)
... Not sure but am trying to find out for myself. I have recently been diagnosed with this infection in my lungs. The doctor wants me to be admitted to hospital for 14 days of antibiotics (oral antibiotics have not worked).

... It's called pseudomonas. It's a bacteria that thrives in water or wet environments. Usually doesn't cause issues with healthy individuals; however, ones that are immune suppressed, have lung issues like cystic fibrosis, it's a very difficult bug to get rid of.

... Thanks. I'm having sputum cultures being done now to see what bacterias they find. Yesterday my doctor said he would put me back on antibiotics if they find something.

... Psedomonas is a big time strain of infection. It runs rampant in hospitals and nursing homes. Healthy humans rarely get it, but if anyone has a catheter, an open wound, a compromised respiratory problem, etc, you don,t want to be around it. :nono: Its really tough to get rid of and takes a super strength Antibiotic to do the trick.

... I was on Biaxin and Ethambutol for 18 months to treat the MAC but it must have not gotten rid of the pseudomonas because the last bronchoscopy that I had showed I had pseudomonas. I think the doctor thinks that taking the antibiotics to try to get rid of it would do more harm that getting rid of it. In other words, if for some reason I needed antibiotics in the future, they...

... Pseudo is very difficult to treat/get rid of, but if it's possibly causing problems, you may want to ask your doctor about tobi nebs or another inhalable antibiotic. Or possibly cipro. Tobi is very expensive and that could be why your doctor doesn't suggest trying it. (15 replies)
