Fri, Feb 8 11:21am · Can't identify my lung disease in Lung Health

Well, here I am again-been a lomg time since I posted any thing. After all my scans, echo, pet scan & most recently, cardio catherization (2nd time) my DR. informs me that there are no obstructions, has to be a pulmonary thing. Pulmonalgalist says its a heart thing. Back to nowhere. Hope I don't have to go thru anymore hailers, etc. Cancer Dr. has a CT scan for 7/1/19 to monitor lymph nodes. Pet scan last year showed growth on lung. Have had that for over 2 year & it's not growing. I continue to be bored silly.

Hate to rain on your parade but I have had a loss of breath going on 3 years. Been thru CT, PET, echo, ETC. Have a pacemaker, 2 cardio catherazations,. That only covers heart treatment. Pulmanary Doctor has given me every inhaler under the sun, nebulizer, etc. Cancer Doctor monitors my other functions with pet scan. I am in the same position as I was on 4/2/16 when all of this started, hope you have better luck

This drug is bad. Every 3 months or so, gout like pain, prednisone is helpful. Fatigue, shortness of breath, swelling & painful joints, especially feet. Anyone have an alternative??

Had a pacemaker installed the day after Thanksgiving-Checked 2 times. Seems to be OK but I still am fatigued, tired, huff & puff after 2 steps! So far, the pacemaker has done NO GOOD!!! I’ve run the gammit from cardio inversion, medication, Etc. Step in pulmonogolist:Got a slew of inhalers , cpap, nebulizer, breathing exercises, nasal inhalers, Etc. So far all have failed-still waiting for a cure since 4/2/16!!!
