Medical Diagnosis of Blastomycosis?: Yes
Where Caught: not really sure where or how mark got it. he is a truck driver but had been laid off, we had a pipe burst under our house that would fit the time line. But i read that it could stay dormant for many years and our old house had mold ...myself and our dog started to have severe seizures along with many other problems
Symptoms: high fever and coughing made me take him to ER. they said possible pneumonia but found mass in lungs. ran tests said they thought it was lung cancer
Treatment: removal of lower left lung
Cost of Treatment: dont even want to think about it. did get my husband on medicare after his work decided to let him go
Additional Comments: this is all so sudden a month ago we were watching tv and mark was going back to work on 4/7.. he got sick 4/5 on 5/11 they removed his lungafter 2 other surgeries...
