I have had asthma all my life, then diagnosed with COPD. Over the past 5 years I have had a terrible cough. My Pulmonologist blew it off until 2016 when I was diagnosed with Psuedomonas, but no bronchiectasis. At that time I was put on Tobi in a nebulizer twice a day and Cipro together for one month. This did very litttle to decrease the cough, and cost me $500 for the Tobi because my insurance would not cover it. A year later, I still have the cough and still have the psuedomonas, only it is now three times worse according to the lab. My Pulomonolgist sent me to a infectious disease specialist, and both doctors agreed that there is nothing that can be done for me, no treatment at all! This is unacceptable to me, so I have started researching where to go to get some type of treatment. I have never been given that flutter thing that has been mentioned, or a vest, or any other treatment except those two antibiotics for a month last year. Can anyone recommend a good place to go for evaluation and treatment? I live in upstate NY, but I am willing to go anywhere in the U.S.that will take my health insurance to find some type of treatment! I would really appreciate any suggestions, thank you.
