  1. I have bronchiectasis. I also have a lousy colon which goes into full ulcerative colitis if I swallow an antibiotic pill.
    My pulmonologist says he can prescribe inhaled antibiotics for me, but the insurance won’t pay. I have one doctor who kept me out of hospital by antibiotic injections, but anyone else has to have me pay for the medicine, which is prohibitive
    How long before Medicare will pay for inhaled antibiotics??
