rvillella Posted August 22, 2006 Share Posted August 22, 2006 Well it's been a year since they removed my right lung. I waffle between it being worth it or not. Lately it seems I have spent more time with the ER Docs than with my wife. I keep getting these little episodes of SOB. I get some breathing treatments, some antibiotics, and inhalers and everything seems to be fine until the next time the weather changes. I got a cold just last week. Went to see my wife in San Antonio (She's learning how to be a manager), and when I got back I was at the SOB stage of having to go into the hospital again. Today they checked to see if I had a blood clot in my lung. Nothing on the scans. The X-Ray was fine, nothing to see, the Cat Scan was unreadable they said because of some movement, One lungers can't hold their breath forever and when you are SOB already it is extremely difficult, so on to the contrasting imaging with a special x-ray that doesn't care if you move. Nothing to see. The plan is to use inhalers and a ten day steroid treatment to see if that helps. I just don't know anymore. I start feeling better and something else comes up. Just not diggin my new normal right now. Ralph Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
