I am 70 and was diagnosed with Bronchiectasis 3 months ago. I had been suffering bouts of ill health for 18 months prior to this diagnosis, i had been given blood teasts, copious breathing tests and was given a 9 month wait for a CT scan. I paid nearly £500 pounds to have a private scan, only to be told by my consultant during my next NHS appointemt, that the results had not been received. I am no nearer to finding out how to help myself than I was 18 months ago. I am finding the illness very ifficult to manage, mentally as well as physically as I am forever feeling tired. My immune system is extremely weak, and as a result I am not able to keep infections at bay. I am given regular doses of antbiotics, but these are only short term solutions. No body seems to be able to inform me as to the prognosis of such a disease.
