    I am some what confused. A month ago i saw my pulm dr at a 6mo scheduled visit. A month before that I had coughed up blood and saw the nurse practioner in the office. She put me on azithromycin and had a chest xray done which was okay no pneumonia. A few weeks ago I saw my pulm dr for a 6mo follow up and he wanted a CT scan done to see what’s what and also a spirometry done. I had the CTscan which showed progression of the MAC/MAI and his nurse called to tell me that there had been progression and he wanted to see me after the spirometry done. I had the spirometry done on Thurs and his office called on Fri to say it was okay and no more meds. Here is where I am confused. Don’t know if that means no more meds for breathing (not on anything other than using a flutter valve) or no more meds meaning antibiotics. I have an appt with his nurse practioner on Thurs this week which had been scheduled after he said he wanted me in after the spriometry. It’s hard to get an appt with him and I’ve seen the NP many times and she is good. I could have emailed the office but just decided to wait until Thurs to see what the thinking is. I should probably add that I have been treated 4 different times for the MAC since 2005
