iv posted a good few times before on here. This time, we might be getting somewhere finally. I have CLD, Asthma and have had so many chest infections I wouldn't want to begin to count.
Pnuemonia twice, plurisey, exerbations of asthma. This weekend i was admitted to a&e locally. Kept in with usual bloods, X-rays, arterial gasses ( which effin kills btw ). Official diagnosis was plurisey again. Given IV antibiotics along with Clarithromycin and prednisone. Along with all of this i was asked on a numours occasions if I smoked, drugs anything which could affect my llungs, which of the last questions were a definite NO. I was also tested for DVT and Clots on lungs. Which come back negative.
Before I was discharged after four doses of IV, and told to continue my treatment at home orally, I had a visit from the doc treating me saying they had spoken to the Local Respiratory Team at my hospital and they have agreed to order a high density CT scan to look at my lungs also full blood tests which go deeper than the normal tox screen and blood counts. Why my lungs have changed since I had my last one twelve month this ago and why the capacity of my lungs are changing. So fingers cross I have an answer to share with you. If anyone has had these test leading to a diagnosis I'd love to hear.
cheers everyone and good health!
