I was wondering if anyone has had a similar experience....Despite getting the pneumon-vax vaccination some years ago, I keep getting pneumonia. I have had it 6 or 7 times in the past 5 years, always warranting an admission (including ITU).
Now, my resp consultant is checking my immunoglobulin levels to see if, for some reason, my immunity is suppressed. (I have constant, intractable oral thrush which does not respond to treatment, which may point to immuno-suppression).
Has anyone else experienced this? I go back for my blood test results in two weeks.
I would appreciate hearing posters' experiences / thoughts / advice on this....
