Hi I had non infectious TB (Mac) leaving me with Bronchiectasis, Recurrent chest infections and Asthma to which I've had for 20 plus years. Consultant rang yesterday as my blood levels keep dropping to the stage where I have little protection. Since Dec I have had 12 lots of Antibiotics 4 lots of steroid.
They are now going to start therapy where I have a transfusion every 3 weeks for 6 months to replace my white cells. Has anyone else gone through this replacement therapy, if so how does it make you feel. I know it will take 5-6 hours the first few times then they can increase the flow so this reduces the time to 2 hours,
Thanks for any replies. I feel as though I'm back in the dark sgain wondering!!!
