Hi there my husband has been diagnosed with chronic cavitary pulmonary aspergillosis , he is 74 yrs of age . I seem to have become more is carer than his wife . he has been ill since last october . He has lost 2 stone in weight , doesnt want to eat , is in pain most of the time , in his lungs head and chest . He has numerous blood tests , 2 lung biopsies , xrays ct scans before ccpa was diagnosed a couple of weeks ago . He has started a course of Itraconazole , initially for a 3 month trial , with weekly blood tests to make sure he is tollerating the meds .
I have this week applied for attendance allowance for him , has anyone else tried to get benefits for this disease and been successful ? would greatly appreciate any replies .
