Hi everyone. Earlier I reported that my daughter had swelling in the lumph nodes between her lungs. A doctor put a tube down her throat and aspirated the nodes to determine what it is. So far the disease, Sarcoidosis has been ruled out. The doctor is now awaiting the results testing for fungus. The procedure used made my daughter fill with mucous. The doctor prescribed levaquin on Friday because things weren't getting better. The levuaquin had to be stopped because my daughter experience shortness of breath and the feeling that something was caught in her throat.In addition, it caused vision problems. I bought her mucinex which helped. This question is for the person who had the fungus in the lymph node. What antibiotic were you given for the fungus?
Now the pulmonary doctor said that she wants to do redo the procedure because she didn't remove enough to test for lymphoma. I do know that Dr. Druker stated that he never had a patient with CML who developed lymphoma. I told my daughter not to go through the procedure again because it was painful and caused difficulty breathing. I suggested going to another doctor for a third opinion. Having read about a fungus in the lymph node, it stated that there is pain in the lymph node until the swelling goes down. The pulmonary doctor is trying to say that it isn't causing pain, and she saw something else like a fibroid and needs another chest x-ray.
What are your thought?
Trey- what do you think?
