I am on my third series of V-fend for ABPA after a mass in my lung in 2009. I have successfully treated the ABPA, but each time developed allergic reactions.

This time I have to find another means of treatment for ABPA, the next treatment of v-fend could kill me.

I have been in severe gastrointestinal distress since taking this med. Joints and muscles hurt like I've been beaten with a bat and now my face, throat, and stomach are swelling severely . I look like I've gained 30 pounds in a week.
