That much be an awful age to find out you have CF.
Looking on the internet earlier, it seems most bronchiectasis treatment is pretty simular to CF treatment, with chest physio and antibiotics.
I mean there is the pancreas side of things with CF. But I've known a couple of people who's gone through life with CF, without needing anything to aid digestion. Maybe now that your Mum and Aunty are older, there experiancing more problems with there pancreas than they did earlier. It may have been unnoticably mild when then they were younger.
Wish all 3 of you the best. Hope they manage to get even closer treatment to what they both need. 62 is a good age:)
