Hello All, I have been dealing with Brochiectasis for 8 years. It never really bothered me but in the last 2 years it seems like it is getting worse. I was sick in December and had to take an anti optic for the first time for the disease. Currently I am coughing a lot and need help know what to do to stop the cough. I have Acapella, Ventolin, Striven and Dulera. I do fought up recreations when I cough. I spoke to a representor from the lung institute who was explaining to me about STEM cells replacement for this disease. She said the cost was $7,000. Do anyone know if STEM cell replacement work. I need so . E help for this disease. Tired of the shortness of breath and the coughing. Thank you

    Stephanie, please call/go see your doctor. If things are that bad on all those meds it's possible that you have another infection. Please don't wait til next week.
