I'm 28, female, was treated for Mycobacterium tuberculosis in 2013-2015. Fully cured. After one year small aspergilloma (fungus ball) decided to appear in cavity. Part of my dead lobe with whole fungus was cut. Everything works well for almost a year. Finally felt healthy! Eat well, gym generally take care of myself.
Two weaks ago, I got sick. 38,8C some kind of lung infection. The doctor gave me Zinatt antibiotic. I felt better the only thing which is still left is cough. I got my CT scan and they say that there is fungus ball again in one cavity Whaaaat?! I'm desperate now. I feel so powerless, helpless.
I'm going to have cavernostomy 28.08.2017. I have one cavity in my lung. The plan is to get rid off the fungus ball but still leave the cavity. I don't understand this at all. So now I will get surgery every year, every time I got little sick? I live in a fear.
How to avoid this fungal infections if you still have cavity?
