Today is Monday 2 July 2012. I have an appointment tomorrow for the results of a lung biopsy 22.06.12 & PET scan 29.06.12 & my head is spinning, I would really appreciate some advice to help calm my nerves if anyone has a similar experience please :-)
Two weeks ago I went for a control thorasic MRI, I have a long history of bad bouts of bronchitis accompanied with a horrendous, deep, painful cough & last Feb 2011 I was admitted to hospital through ER having woken at 3am withthemost horrific stabbing pains in my left chest (was not ill prior), diagnosed with severe lung & kidney infection, kept on oxygen, intravenous antibiotics & fluids for 5 days discharged after scan they said was fine. Took another week or so till I felt better, I felt brilliant for a while but during the summer I noticed that I was constantly waking up with a sore throat, not every day, but it was a constant, I then noticed that I wasn't just coughing on accasion, but coughing every day. Very dry harsh deep cough which didn't produce phlegm every time, but maybe 3 to 6 times a day. Didn't doanyhing about it as I know I have hyper sensitive airways (do not have asthma), also have had horrible family tragedy followed by another & further issues more important than my stupid cough & constantly feeling unwell, so jusycarried on with life. in April this year itbecame impossible for me to eat or drink without having a major coughing/choking fit, often including severe wretching. This continued for about 6 weeks till it cleared.
