Went to doctor two weeks ago. We did a sputum test.  It came back Mrsa.      Anyone have this result.     No antibiotic nothing. Is this common with bronchiectasis

    Hi there

    I contracted mrsa when I was in hospital. You can catch it just by touching someone who is a carrier it's highly contagious and is treated with anti biotics. My advice is go the doctors as it can sometimes be serious if you have BX or other health issues.

    Good luck,

    Rach

    You're going to need some good, attentive docs. It's antibiotic resistant so if they don't know what they're doing, you're better off without.

    Good luck. This and pseudomonas are what we all fear.
