My daughter (22 years of age) was recently diagnosed with Eosphilliac Pneumonia after a series of blood tests, CAT scans, 2 lung biopsies, lymph node biopsy, and tons of x-rays. Her stay at the hospital lasted 7 days due to problems with her lung staying inflated. This is the lung that they took to the biopsy from. She is currently taking steriods and her lungs show marked improvement. She still has profuse night sweats and her white blook cell count is "extremely high". (I do not have the exact number) The doctors can not give her an answer but keep drawing blood. The doctors are passing her around from doctor to doctor and now she has been referred to an infectious disease specialist. Her chest tube wound is not healing and she has had a problem healing peirced ears and other places. They are putting stitches back in the chest tube site on the 16th of Jan. Example: when she had a mole removed her skin will break out in a rash. They think that she allergic to neosporin type ointment. The area did not heal very well. The tape used in the hospital to bandage her chest tube opening caused a rash so now we will assume that she's allergic to tape. Problems are continuing to pop up. Any ideas of what area we need to focus on?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
