Allergic Bronchopulmonary Aspergillosis
The good news here everyone is that I get to add a new acronym!! Yay!! APBA! Nice. Obscure!! I'llllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll take it! The little blue letters above will take to you an explanatory link. You may notice that MY symptoms are essentially listed in a nice orderly fashion in the article. They may even have copied and pasted from my blog. (Although I try not to mention the word "sputum" I mean? Really? I can't be putting words like that on my blog. No siree. Yuck.) Mike: I can't believe you missed this. Seriously. We should be ashamed of ourselves: veterans like us. Interestingly, it all came to together yesterday when my CF docs at the U started asking about a lab I did weeks ago (said results have evidently been sitting in medical-paper-pile-limbo since) which showed my IgE level over 700. Apparently the whole thing is pretty conclusive now. We'll see what a few weeks of steroids will do.
