Living with a nontuberculous mycobacterial infection requires a skilled and experienced medical team to design and implement a treatment protocol. The success of your treatment relies on YOU, your medical professionals, and your medicines.
Fortunately, you can play an active role in the progress of your treatment. You should be fully committed to wellness and seek the support of family and friends. Your lifestyle and routines will likely change. The changes you make are to improve your health and lengthen your life, and with a positive attitude these can be rewarding rather than burdensome.
Once you have fully discussed your condition and treatment plan with your doctor, it’s up to you to implement your treatment and follow through with full commitment.
