Chlamydia Pneumoniae, BOPC and Emphysema
I have just discovered this website and all it's rich content. Actually, I am Polo, 33 years old man, Ex Smoker, since 2 weeks and my problem is the following: I am sick since 20 May 06. Fever Peaks, Muscular pains and also sweat peaks. It has been pretty difficult to discover it was a Chlamydia Pneumoniae. First, the Pr. at the Hospital thought it was a Lymphom. I had a Ganglionic biopsy. It was negative (lucky !). After that they found Chlamydia antibody in my blood. Not so much (around 500 antibody in blood). They also found a polipal maxillary sinusitus. I had to threat it with Sofrasolone and Becconase for one month. For the Chlamydia, I received Fisrtly one week Biclar (Clarithromicyne) and then one month Maclar (Also Clarithromicyne). After that treatment, I had 4 times more antibody in my blood around 2000). They also discovered an heavy Emphysema and BOPC in both longs (pretty advanced state due to tabaccologic sensitivity (Alpha 1 antitripsin OK in blood)). So I saw a Pneumolog and I stopped immediately to smoke. My longs are already heavy been injured. All symptoms were still presents after Biclar and Maclar so I received 50 Days Doxycycline 200. Fever was nearly dissapeared and I felt quite better. But after 8 days of the end of Doxycycline, symptoms slowly started again. On blood side, antibody decreased a bit but not so much (+- 1600). I went yesterday to the Doctor who advised me to stop all treatments right now and wait. But I really feel unconfortable. I should start to work again next monday and I am really sceared about coming back of symptoms and fever which is still present times to times. What should I do? What can I expect for the future. Does someone have any idea of possible or expected threatments? Sorry if my case seems quite common on such forum but I didn't received much answers at hospital.
Thanks in advance for your help, piece of advice and reactions.
