I have just seen my immunologist yesterday as my immune system is shot to pieces. I have and have for a few years COPD and Bronchiectasis. I have now been told by my specialist that my blood is no longer producing enough antibodies or protein and as I have been on long term antibiotics the next step in weekly blood transfusions to try to increase the antibodies and protein in the blood to prevent or help my chest infections.
As a result of my failure to produce antibodies the chest infections are getting worse and as a result although I have Angina I now have heart failure because of the thickening of my right heart muscle which pumps the blood to the lungs.
Anyway boys and girls my question to you is very simple , has anyone had blood transfusions for the same thing.?
I have put this question on here because it is all interrelated to the lung, heart COPD and the rest of our illnesses. Thanks for your time
