: Hello Tony,
: My husband who is 23 also has CF. Recently he had the flu, pneumonia and a blood infection all at the same time. He spent the last 2 and a half months in the hospital and he became immune to some meds. They also told us about the possibility of him not being able to have a transplant because of being resistant to antibiotics. Well, I have never heard of the Silver thing you mentioned. I would like to know more about it. I have to tell you though that they have in the past told my husband that he was resistant to a certain med and then when they tried it on him again it worked, they were surprised. I don't want to get your hopes up cause CF works differently for people. I guess all I can say is don't stop at what the doctors say. Get a second opinion on EVERYTHING and fight with all you've got. I am sure you have experienced more than I have with this and you probably already know most of what I'm telling you. I have just experienced a lot these past four years with doctors and nurses telling me stuff that wasn't true. I often find myself correcting doctors. It sometimes shocks me that these people were actually trained to do this and some of them really know nothing. I have also been told by friends to seek alternative therapy, holistic medicine. Have you ever tried that? I haven't yet because of the costs, but I have heard it works for some people. Anything is worth a try at this point. My husband has not become resistant to all the meds yet so they are currently testing him to be listed on the transplant list. I pray you will find something that will help your daughter. If I can be of any help just let me know. The internet has a lot of information and probably even a cure that no one has yet discovered. I will be more than happy to help you search.
: Wishing you the best,
Thank you for replying to my message.
I also read your earlier posting. Has your husband tried taking Ensure drinks. These come in cans, and you would find them in any grocery store, or Longs drug store, 350 calories per can! (If you are still in Ca.) My daughter is also a picky eater,it must come with the territory. As for the colloidal silver,you should look at http://colloidal-silver.com/article1.htm We have started using some herbal medicine.It takes longer to work but it is a lot safe than high powered medicine.
Of course, with something as serious as c/f one has to take the traditional antibiotics as well.
However, all you say about doctors is true,though there are some dedicated ones out there.(They are hard to find).
As we have only just started on the colloidal silver,it is too early to have any results.
I will keep you posted,
best of luck. Tony.
