New diagnosis

Posted , 2 users are following.

I've just had my first sleepless night having just received CT scan results for Bronchiectasis.

I had a routine chest x Ray 10 months ago, which by some bizarre flook was only reported 3 weeks ago! I had a repeat x Ray and subsequently a CT scan.

I am puzzled as have never smoked, don't drink, work full time,eat healthily, Nordic walker, and have absolutely no symptoms of anything! I've never had a chest infection in my life ( I'm 64)....

what do I do now?

am I waiting for something to happen?

Can you have this 'thing' and never experience any symptoms?

i have bad colds like everyone... but they never are chesty

    All the exercise may be helping you stay clear..

    All about not allowing gunk settle in lungs as it then becomes infected. If you could find a good 

    Respiratory physio they can show you breathing exercise to clear lungs. Look up active cycle of breathing .
