About 10 years ago I had a severe infection. Did not have it treated for a month, and of course from that infection came about other things. I had asthma when I was 35/wow what a shocker, had both lungs calapse 6 years ago and along with allergies (of which i was tested and have none) just the symptons. I am in the bathroom 6 times a night blowing my nose and gagging. Have a pulmonist that has finally ordered ct scans and found my lower lobes (both) have colapsed and has some dark spots on them. My daughter said to me today "its time to go to mayo" but I dont think I can afford it. Has anyone out there come out of what I have for the good? I have all but given up.
