Sorry for late response, since my last post I became really sick pulmonary wise. High fevers of 102+ with sob (O2 sats @89%on R/A and extreme pain in my Rt lower lobe and Lt lower lobe to the point I was unable to lay on my rt side.
I did see a Infectious Disease doctor @ University of North Carolina/Chapel Hill. They did every type of test known to man (seriously) I've had lung, diaphragm and other muscle biopsies and 5 bronchoscopies, PET scans Ct scans and MRI's everything was ruled out except for C.F. and bronchiectasis
NOW I just have a lot of the pain and when I cough up It's been a grey or dark green color of 3-5cc of fresh blood. It seems that the blood is a big clot but bright red and it only lasts for 2-3 coughs, so about
6-8cc total. Maybe its a bleb? I don't know. I've been fever free for 36hr's but did have a continuous fever for about 7-days...I am calling the pulmonary doc's at UNC in the AM on 9/13/13
AVASCULAR-NECROSIS (AVN) in 6 joints. HIPS,KNEE'S and SHOULDERS.
ALL ORTHOPEDIC PROBLEMS DUE TO PREDNISONE.
