    DeltaF508 and R117H 7T

    My daughter has mutations W1282X and R117H.
    she's been doing rather well with only a few 'scares' and only 1 hospitalization.
    we've attributed this to the R117H mutation, but live in fear daily of the other one.
    our second daughter is a carrier for R117H, so no CF but she does have some pretty serious allergies which trigger breathing problems (asthma, but they don't seem to call it that anymore).
    overall, our experience has been managable, but we know better than to let our guard down

    F508 delta and R117H-7T - I have these two mutations, and found out only when my son was about 3 when i was going to donate eggs and they rejected me. Told me I should have CF since I had two mutations. I thought they mixed the results with someone else, since I was completely surprised. That was 12 years ago and clearly to date I have no CF that Iím aware of. Have a history of mild asthma and deal with bronchitis once a year or so and colds to the chest fast and often require inhaler/nebulizer treatment (once every two years or so). Otherwise happy and healthy and nothing else Iím aware of. I never formally had any other testing of lung function CF etc since I havenít had the need to. So clearly, this mix can be very mild. I did pass the R1117h mutation to my son which showed up when I ran his raw dna data through Prometheus.
