Hi everyone, I've mentioned previously of my 4.4 TAA and also experiencing slight to moderate pain when I breathe in deep, sneeze hard or cough hard. If I'm breathing normal I don't feel anything, I also don't feel pain if I lift my arms, bend down, etc.
Went back and forth to pulmonologist, gave me breathing test, chest x-ray, CT scan with contrast.....lungs are working as they should, responding normally. CT scan did not find pulmonary embolisym (my initial concern), nor did it find any other issues within my lungs.
PCP and cardiologist think it's muscular/skeletal, pulmo thinks that's a possibility. I was concerned about pleuritis but that was ruled out.
Concern is that I'm leaving Saturday to go to Cozumel for 7 days and 15 dives. Going to take it nice and easy and abort dives if I have to, or simply request to stay shallow if pressure affects me.
Curious now if my TAA has anything to do with this??? Anyone else experience this?
