Well I was so happy about my clear CT findings but I did note that it said I had a moderately large atelectasis and a bronchiectasis and a pleural effusion but did not hear from the dr after I already had the report but he called Saturday to tell me I needed antibiotics for pneumonia. Has anyone had this stuff? I don't have a fever, just a cough that causes me to gag and vomit and can't seem to control the cough. I have thrown up much lately that I have lost about 4 lbs and am down to 119-120. I feel like I have aspiration pneumonia from vomiting so much. Like someone said it is not normal vomiting after an esophagectomy. So I am happy about clear CT but have so much shortness of breath and coughing, I can't celebrate the way I want. LOL!! I see the dr on Wed and I am going to say this is not acceptable, I am not getting strength back seem to be going backwards. So any input would be appreciated. thanks and prayers for all.
