I have gotten two comments about Olivia's bronchoscopy that has me wondering a couple of things of CF'ers and parents of CF'ers.
1. What age did you/your child start getting bronchoscopies?
2. How often do you get them done?
Olivia had her first bronch done in October when she was 7 1/2 months old. Her doctors wanted to do it because she had been fighting off a respiratory infection for two months. The mucous that they cleaned out of her lungs didn't grow anything abnormal, but they were surprised by the amount of mucous because her lungs sounded so clear. They told us to schedule her next one during the summer so that when she starts school (in about 4 years) her YEARLY BRONCH won't interfere.
