Hi every one,
i had my 6 month check at the respitory clinic the other week, spent a good half an hour with the doc who was brilliant, she listened to me & gave all the answers I wanted & needed so that was great.
She has said the cause of the bleeding is due to blood vessels in the lungs bursting when I get an infection as there attached to the airways. I have bronchiectasis in both lungs & its spread all over the lungs from top to bottom. The airways that are affected look like rings as there circular & have what looks like a diamond on them which is the blood vessel. It's these vessels that burst & bleed when I have an infection. Was good to find out the cause & now she said she will be keeping a close eye me & has got me on a four month review instead of a six month one. Being sent for loads of tests over the coming months to find the cause of the bronchiectasis as still not known. Had bloods & next week going for a full pulmonary lung function test, all go here lol.
Well I hope every one is ok & your all smiling & laughing, take care all & hope to speak to you soon :0)
