in 2009 I had a very bad chest infection, after antibiotics it still did not clear. Later I was sent to see a chest specialist. The specialist hummed and hawed as to a diagnosis and recommended further tests. He added a line to the letter to my GP stating that 'he did not understand the significance of the aspergillus antibodies in my blood'. Now I have been diagnosed with Severe COPD in 2014, again I was tested for aspergillus, and guess what.....I still have these antibodies.
Having spoken to the BLF nurse, she recommended that I get in touch with the National Aspergillus Centre in Manchester, which I did, they have told me to get a GP referral. I asked for the referral but my GP said it has to go before a committee for approval (I live in Scotland).
Anyone else have restrictions put on them by Committee's? Has anyone had resting for Aspergillus?
