Hi All. Just before Thanksgiving I got really ill. Started out with cough and difficulty breathing. Doctor (pulmonary specialist) put me on antibiotics and after 7 days I was worse. He changed antibiotics and those didn't seem to have an affect either. On December 1, I went to the hospital so the doc could do a brochoscopic "lung wash" to clean out my lungs. The mucus build up in my lungs was so severe and tight that my lungs wheezing sounded like a suffocating whale! What my doc discovered was that I had a yeast infection in my lungs!!! He started me on Sporonox plus the continuation of the antibiotics. Within a few days I started feeling much better. Lab results later confirmed the yeast spores. This was my 4th lung wash. Has anyone else had the bronch lung wash? Has anyone else gotten a yeast infection in their lungs? I hate the procedure itself but once he is finished it is amazing how much better I can breath -- until the build-up starts again.
