I know it is not cancer or related to cancer, but on July 31st I had 15% of my lung removed for HSP. Two weeks after the surgery I was put on high dosage Prednisone til about 1.5 weeks ago.
Today when I woke up, I had that same wheeze/crackle and trouble breathing that I had when I had the HSP mass removed. It certainly isn't as bad as before surgery (I had a terrible cough, breathing problems, I could hardly talk without running out of breath, and had a much worse crackle when exhaling), but the return is concerning.I am a tad concerned it is coming back.
Thank goodness the pulmonologist had ordered a CT Scan of the lungs last week and I see him this Thursday.
It is scarey because we don't know what in my environment is causing it (I had all kinds of tests). Being on Prenisone all the time is not good for my health, but I can't keep getting this, growing masses and having lung tissue removed.Eventually I will run out of lungs....that is supposed to be a joke, ha ha ha.
Anyway, I would like the Pink Bus on Thursday afternoon. I will be bringing you all with me to the appt.
