a most elusive fish
Ouch, sounds awful. Best of luck and speedy recovery to Rod.
Per my post #5, speaking from personal experience, I can tell you it is very unpleasant. Regarding the kidneys, I had a retrograde pyelogram under general anaesthetic to examine my kidneys; fortunately they weren’t damaged. I remember feeling very energized physically and mentally once the bilharzia was cured, and there’ve been no ongoing issues in the 60 years since. The only thing I can’t do is donate blood, but that’s probably more to do with my having had malaria; mind you, as soon as I mentioned I’d had two tropical parasitic diseases they showed me the door.I suppose long term from what he has said the problem could be kidney damage. Must be horrible peeing out blood and worms, I’d imagine very uncomfortable.
Think I would freak out !
