Max L Posted April 16, 2008 Share Posted April 16, 2008 Good morning all. Have a question regarding shortness of breath. Since I had my upper left lobe removed 12/7/2007, I am still experiencing shortness of breath. I do have heart disease, but my blood test has been excellent with Cholesterol 118, Triglycerides 101, and HDL versus LDL is 2.4% which is really good, but perhaps the combination of both the lung operation and heart disease makes a difference. Anyway I just purchased a Nintendo Wii, which I highly recommend to anyone, and when I use that I have no problem and it is a good exercise tool. Also doing approx. 30 minutes at a 2.7 level on treadmill is also fine. I have felt it at times doing a little extra work around house and store but for a short period of time. It is the worst when Inez and I are out in the evening air and walking. It is almost impossible to walk any distance at all before this occurs. Wondering if anyone having the same operation as me, has had the same problem. Other than this Inez and I are doing fine. Please take care, keep fighting and never never give up. Have a wonderful day. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
