I got an update from my doctor out of the blue and they think they figured me out all of a sudden. Been having problems off and on still this whole time but everyone keeps saying they can't find any problems. They told me today I have acid fast bacteria in my abdomen?
I did some looking, does that mean I have TB? I had a positive TB test earlier this year but they told me I didn't have TB and never put me on the drugs for it. They tell me they are still running tests and would call me back tonight but they didn't call.
What could it be if there is this acid fast bacteria in my abdomen? They think they solved me but won't tell me what it is yet pending the other tests on whatever that bacteria is. It's been a long 19 months with this. They did say I'll be going to an infectious disease doctor next week.
Suggestions? Specific questions I should be asking? Why didn't something like this come up at Mayo or the string of Pulmonologists I've seen since December 2007?
Thanks for your time all.
