5 yrs ago, a bronchoscopy culture identified mycobacterium avium in my lungs along with my emphysema. They knew little about the cause back then. Now I'm reading it may be coming from showerheads and the spray from showers. Tx. at that time was 6-18 months of multiple antibiotics which could eliminate it, or not, or it could return. Since it is very slow growing, and the side effects of so many antibiotics over such a long period of time seemed overwhelming, we elected not to treat it. Anyone else have this little stinker of a bacteria? What tx did you have? The symptoms are the same as for emphysema, so you can't know which has had the most ill effect on you.
