Hi. In 2009 my husband was diagnosed with anca positive vasculitis. It attacked and destroyed his kidneys. He has peritoneal dialysis using a machine overnight. For 2 years he had a cough on which antibiotics had no effects. He started passing blood in the small amount if urine he could pass. He coughed up blood. He was referred to Urology and also Thorasic depts. Meanwhile vasculitus markers were 500 plus and were ignored. In May he was seriously ill and admitted to hospital with pulmonary haemorrhage. Vasculitis caused. Now on steroids and chemo every 3 weeks until November. I was shocked to find out (after all this) the markers were so high and ignored in favour of other investigations. Is this what vasculitis does? We were told this type attacked kidneys and would not return as he has no kidneys. What is the prognosis with vasculitis like this? Thank you for taking time to read this. Sorry its long and drawn out.
