cindi o'h Posted November 18, 2006 Share Posted November 18, 2006 I went in on Sunday night. Still was not breathing well. Turns out it is my lungs and heart. They kept me through Weds. evening and treated me very well. Switched around some meds and hopefully that will help me on track. I have fluid around my heart (mod. am't. now) and left lung...(moderate). I fell hard on Friday and hurt my back. The CT scan showed a compression fracture in my spine. 5 years ago I had the strong bones of a 20 year old. With chemo, rad, and prednisone, they are porous. Have to watch it now... no more plunking down on precarious chairs without thoughtful consideration of the consequences. I was having much edema in my legs and feet and that is getting better. I am on Oxygen full time now. Still on high prednisone. Very bad asthma flare along with everything else. Should be off it in a week or so... (been very very yackity!) Still hanging in there and definitely still giving 'em hell-. Only way to GO! Cindi o'h Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
