I am 61 years of age and have been diagnosed with mild Bronchiectasis this year, I've had constant infections from January to mid July, and have now had 4 weeks where I feel well, with no infections, which is brilliant. I am a bit confused as to whether or not I should carry on using the flipper device, which leads me to ask whether the Acapella device is better than the flipper or not. Also I do feel really tired which is concerning me, is this normal whilst in a well patch, is it just part of the condition.
My other concern is about Carbocisteine, which seem to cause me to get really constipated, has anyone else had the same problem and is there an alternative.
I have total trust in both my doctor and the chest specialist, but am the kind of person that needs to know all the facts, and would like to hear from fellow sufferers, mainly to put my mind at rest
As you can see from the above, I am confused, and just need to understand my condition, so I know what to expect.
