For 3rd time in 15 days, I'm admitted to hospital for breathing problems. Still doing chemo, have my "bad" days where I get out of breath after sleeping, or getting up. Can't catch breath, get vertigo and panic.
End up having bf take me to ER or ambulance. Currently on prednisone, magnesium, potassium, 3 antibiotics, 2 other sterioids, nasal spray, puffer and cough. Needed red transfusion again, on ativan for high anxiety and insulin shots due to pred.
I don't handle pred well at all and they finally weaning me off, thak goodness.
Slowly gettig all these uder control afrer last 5 days. I freak about not catching breath at home but they won't presribe it unless reading is 88...mine is 89. I can't keep paying non covered ER and ambulance visits. No one one seems concerned that I'm frantic about not beig able to breathe a home.
I've been handling the SCLC scenario, chemo's and radiations but today I hit dejection point and could scream.
