hey all,
I haven't posted in a bit. Having really big time lung issues.
WOW a lot of test.
I have many issues with lungs, and so many allergens that doc wants me get injections Xonair I think it's called. But it's very hard to get approval from insurance co. due to it's very expensive.
I have so many nodules and fungus it will take another 8-10 wks to grown them and test those.
Since first of Oct. I have been on just 2lts of O2. And after the bronchoscope I just had he upped that.
I coughed so hard after the scope I pulled a muscle or few big time just other day, I could breath without knife stabbing pain.
Well I'm off to my sleep study tonight. After all these test, my body is in big time flare up. So will be fun to see if I sleep at all.

  • That's rough you're having a hard time of this with fungus and nodules in your lungs. I hope they can find out what caused it and treat you for it soon.

    It's tough enough to have spine issues never mind another chronic issue added on and making it for tests seems so exhausting I know I've had a lot of extra tests for Glaucoma and knee issues and the waiting is awful for results and specialists.

    I haven't heard of that medication before but if you go to the company Pharmaceutical website they may be able to help with low cost and maybe get some samples from your Dr?

    I just had a sleep study end of September and I didn't sleep much and it was freezing and they had no extra blankets at the hospital. I have mild to moderate sleep apnea and have to wait for a Respiratory Dr. appointment so I can get a Bipap machine and another sleep study for adjustment for that. In the meantime I'm exhausted all day waiting to see the Specialist knowing I'\m not getting enough air while sleeping.

    Keep us posted how you're doing and praying for you. Take care. Charry
