My husband has a history of Asthma, Allergies,Pneumonia, boils, broken bones, since a birth. 4 and 1/2 years ago he got cellulitus that required 3 treatments of IV antbiotics to clear up. At the time they made the comment that he must have a suppressed immune system. Nothing else was done. Since then he has two episodes of kidney infection and several times running a fever with extreme fatigue lasting 4 days and then clearing up. This resulted in an extreme area of pain over the right kidney - diagnosed as damage to the area of tissue surrounding that kidney. CT scan - nothing significant except for scarring on the lungs. Bone Scan showed increased activity in many places - namely wrists, knees and ribs. Scoliosis in lower spine. He has continued to go downhill - weight loss of 25 + lbs. He is quite hunched over, feels the cold easily, always fatigued. He is 58 years old. Now a blood tests has revealed an abnormal amount of IGg antibody. What am I to make of all this? He is to go in to see an immune specialist. What specific questions should I ask? He now has a painful area approximately 3" long on the thoracic area of his spine. It is raised and he cannot stand any pressure on it. We are getting quite frustrated as we have no definite diagnosis and therefore our disability insurance will not cover Chronic Pain syndrome. Would appreciate any input that would be of valuable assistance.
