Bronchiectasis

Can bronchiectasis be resistant to amoxicillian? My mother was just recently diagnosed  and was prescibed this antibiotic 875 miiligrams  twice a day for 2 weeks and had a repeat scan. It showed no improvement. We scarred it is something worse.What are the chances. she does not want a biopsy.

Hi,
Bronchiectasis is a condition that favors infection. The structural damage in this disease renders the lung vulnerable to getting recurrent or new infections. The antibiotics only clear the infection - but do not change the abnormal structures, so it is not suprising to get resistances to certain drugs- then shift to a different drug.
I hope the fear of the biopsy is not making her hide some other symptoms  due to the fear that investigation would be initiated resulting in undertreatment.
Stay positive.
