Diagnosis Bronchiectasis

I have recently been diagnosed with Bronchiectasis.   My pulmonologist recommended a product called “The Vest. “  I have it on a 30-day trial and it’s worked wonders.  MUCH less coughing and mucus, greated lung capacity, etc.    My insurance company has denied coverage on this very expensive piece of equipment and, while I am appealing the decision, I’m also looking to see what else is out there that will aid long-term, in keeping my lungs clear.   I’ve seen several products that are not only much less expensive, but also seem easier to deal with.  Frankly, I’m not crazy about the shaking-up I get twice a day with the Vest.   I’d like to hear from others with this disease so I can learn what else might work and where these other options can be found.  Thanks
