I realise this is rather a specialist topic but would like to hear the experience of anyone on nebulised antibiotics. I have had bronchectasis for 45 years and over 10 years ago I became colonised with the bug Pseudomas Aeruginosa. I was prescribed a twice daily nebulised antibiotic called Colymicin and this enabled me to continue working in a senior management role for a further 5 years. I had to retire on ill health grounds 5 years ago. It takes me 5 hours a day of physiotherapy and medicine administration to keep me out of hospital and this has a significant impact on my life. My consultant now wants me to try alternating Colymicin with Tobramycin to slow my declining lung function and also to reduce my reliance on steroids (which have given me painful legs and very thin skin). However, she is unable to get funding as it will cost approximately £10k per annum. Is anyone else is in this position?
