Antibodies revisited

After two years without giving Antoni antibodies, after his constantly running nose, ear infections and other discomforts resulting from immunodeficiency, we turned to immunology again to discuss it.

In the summer we have repeated the tests for antibody levels. They turned out to be below norm again. For starters, the doctor proposed a continuous antibiotic therapy.

After two months we know it’s not working for Antoni. Diarrhea, crying, lack of concentration – even worse than usual. On top of that, …

tonsils and immune system

In the last days of June Antoś underwent a long-awaited surgery to remove his tonsils and adenoids. They were causing a lot of issues for him, he was catching infections one after the other, nose was always stuffed and he had difficulty breathing during the night.

The surgery was under general anaesthetic and it went well, Antoni returned home the following day. He had to stay home for almost two weeks, so Antoni’s grandmother came which suited him very well. …

ENT update

One day after finishing antibiotic and Antoni’s problems with sleep are back and he complained of pain today which is unusual for him. He was seen by a GP three days ago who did not even bother to look into his ears. We are definitely not going back there but private ENT consultant is not available until mid-March so tomorrow off for a search for another one who could see Antoni earlier.…

why NHS is failing Antoni again

Antoni has spent his half-term break in Poland. He was glad to see Grandma and his uncles and got spoiled with gifts from the family.

While there, Antoni was seen by several doctors and therapists. We were concerned about his health issues for some time, and it turns out that Antoni has been suffering from chronic ear infection, overgrown tonsils/adenoids, and also his postural problems worsened (misaligned pelvis, scoliosis). Unfortunately, we felt like over five years ago, when Antoni’s …

new glasses

Antoni has a new nickname – the Professor. It is all because of the corrective glasses that he started to wear recently. No major dramas so far and he seems to be tolerating them, not as the hearing aids that were fitted at the end of summer.
Antoni has several problems with his vision … myopia (shortsightedness), astigmatism and suspected macular pathway dysfunction. Hopefully the new glasses will eliminate some of the difficulties. We are not sure if Antoni’s difficulty …


Antoni has hypogammaglobulinaemia, which means there are low levels of immunoglobulins (also known as antibodies) in his body. These are part of the immune system which is the body’s defence against infection. Antoni has been on replacement therapy (infusions) since he was very little (less than one year old).

(Interestingly, according to experts at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference 2012 in Vancouver, the immune therapy Gammagard – which Antoni is receiving – is the first long-term treatment shown to halt

Health check

Updates on Antoni’s health:

– the latest visit at cardiologist’s confirmed that his PFO has not closed out. PFO is a hole between the two upper chambers of the heart. It is actually quite common, and it is believed to contribute to a fatigue (as the blood with oxygen mixes up with the blood with no oxygen before being pumped out through the veins), or even a stroke (caused by a blood clot finding its way to the brain).We will …
