Where I have been...
    #314941 - 05/11/01 05:17 PM (16 years, 4 months ago)

As some of you might have noticed, I have been absent from the boards lately. I have been in and out of the hospital for the last 2 weeks. What I thought was the flu turned out to be a case of aspergillus niger growing in my lungs. It damn near killed me.
I am finally off of the oxygen tanks and can get up and move around for a bit. If you have ordered from me recently and haven't received your orders yet then you can expect them to be shipped on the Monday.
My head gremlin cannot get into the States so the US orders are backed up by a week and a half. Sorry for the delays everyone and I should be back on top of things in a few days.
As a footnote, be very careful around contaminated cultures...they can be deadly. If my doctor didn't know what I did for a living I would have been dead now. This illness hits hard and fast and not being able to breathe is something that I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy.

Thank you for that post believe it or not I was discussing that with a friend 2 days ago I noticed mold spores would go every where if the got dumped out in the garbage,or nocked over. I am glad that you answered that question without me having to post Ihave a new born son and that was when I started looking into it.

At least now you know where those contams were coming from. ;)

Your absence was certainly noticed 3M. I hope you're feeling better now.

Does aspergillus niger in your lungs get mistaken for asthma?

Ok, I wondered what this was and after doing a search, I found a good ID plate and description of aspergillus niger. Hopefully this will help people on their toes!

Glad to hear you are feeling better 3M. Don't get too carried away with work, make sure you are feeling up to it first.

Peace,

How do you get this stuff growing in your lungs?

Do you inhale the spores? Do you eat contaminated mushrooms? What are the symptoms?

I just want to know what precautions I should take if I encounter this stuff.

I'm glad to know you are feeling better 3m but If you are feeling ok then I think it would be great for you to let people know as much as you can tell them about this nasty contam.

As some mof you know I grow commercial oyster mushrooms. I was composting a pile of spent substrate to use in my garden. As I was turning the pile I noticed a lot of aspergillus niger running through it but I didn't think much of it at the time since I was outside.
I guess I have been burning the candle at both ends for awhile and allowed myself to get a bit rundown and my immune system wasn't up to the spores that I inhaled. I woke up the next morning with what I thought was one bitch of a cold. By noon I couldn't breathe and passed out. My daughter called an ambulance and they rushed me to the hospital. The docs initially thought pneumonia but I came to long enough to tell them that I had been exposed to aspergillus niger and a sputum sample confirmed that it was growing in my lungs.
For 3 days I had to go through aspiration(vacuuming the lungs) IV fungicides, nebulizer inhaler containing fungicide as well as antihistamines. I have been on oxygen for almost 2 weeks now.
I spend 4 hours a day on an incline board to help my lungs drain because the first thing that the fungus attacked was the cilia in my lungs and they have no way of getting the crap out. As well, I can only sit up for short periods of time without getting dizzy and light headed but it is getting better.
Do not screw around with contams. This very nearly killed me. If I hadn't told the doc about aspergillus niger I would have received a conventional run of antibiotics and would have died. A niger isn't something that they routinely run into

A niger is a fairly common contam with cubes too so if you see a black contam be very careful. It is in the environment all around us but a concentrated blast when your immune system is weak can cause problems.

Fair enough 3M, you are a good man for that... If it was someone in my family and he said that I would not appreciate the humour.. Maybe I've seen enough death to know that joking about someone almost dying is not cool....

My apologies if I was being too harsh.
