Mycobacterium Chimaera anyone involved with this after Open Heart surgery, I have had blood test's done but not the correct ones for this. I have tried Private Blood testing places but again with no luck, I am worried about this Virus I have many of the symptoms listed in the NHS letter sent out after the Daily Mail uncovered this terrible virus that Southampton Hospital tried to hide. This is a recent reply from the Nuffield group:~
Thank you for your enquiry. Unfortunately, due to the specialised nature of of your enquiry, it is not something we can assist with through this service. We don't for example culture for "routine" Mycobacterium let along investigate for Myco. chimaera. Should there be a requirement for a site culture this needs to be a tissue sample as swabs are not acceptable, so would again involve clinical input.
If you have any specific concerns regarding whether this is an issue for you it may be better to raise this with the clinical teams managing your bypass if you haven't already done so.
Not very good when they make spelling mistakes. But anyone who is worried about that letter that the Hospital of Southampton sent out last year, I would be glad of any lab I can apply to get a private Blood test done to see if I actually have this virus.
