Survived?: Yes

Medical Diagnosis of Blastomycosis?: Yes

Where Caught: I think it was from an apartment I lived in on the Crow River in Hanover MN. It used to be a Mill on the river and was renovated into apartments. There was a huge rotting hole in the wall in the kitchen. It got bigger for 7 years to the point where I had to put a towel in it to keep the cold out in the winters. The landlords never did fix it while I lived there. I had my lung removed while I was still living there.

Symptoms: Fatigue, chronic coughing and body aches.

Treatment: Removal of upper lobe of left lung and anti fungal medication.

Cost of Treatment:

Additional Comments: I have been having really bad joint and body aches and am tired all the time. I have no insurance and am afraid that I may still have it.
