 I am new to the CF board and wanted to introduce myself and ask a question if I could.
My name is John and I have CF. I was not diagnosed until very late (28). It started with Pancreatitis and infertility. I have failed 3 sweat tests (78,84,74) and my DNA test showed Df508, and 5t. I have never really had any major lung problems, but I have always had sinus problems, and digestive problems.
I am 30 now and every time my pulmonologist takes a swab of my throat it grows Stap Aureus (that is spelled wrong I'm sure). My question is two fold 1) Is that something I should worry about and 2) I have lately developed very sore knees and elbows that seem to come and go about every 2 weeks or so and lasts about 2 days. Is this common with CF or would this be something else?
I am sorry to jump on and ask a question, but I was wondering if other people with CF has had this problem.
Thanks for all your help.
